Project title: Operator and spectral theory of plasmon resonances for structures with corners and edges
Department/School: Department of Mathematics and Statistics / School of Mathematical, Physical and Computational Sciences
Supervisors: Karl-Mikael Perfekt and Michael Levitin
Project Overview: This is a fully funded PhD studentship in analysis. The project sets out to study surface plasmon resonances in constellations of nanoparticles. To analyse the problem, we will use a formulation in terms of integral operators. We will investigate how the underlying geometry influences the spectrum and other properties of systems of such operators.
