**Suitable for: **Third year students with good programming background and knowledge of partial differential equations.

**Project: **There remain questions about how failure initiates in complex geometrical situations. We will model the stress...

Our research is concentrated on:

- Nonlinear partial differential equations, in particular systems;
- Dynamical systems;
- Calculus of Variations;
- Geometric evolution equations (in particular the harmonic map heat flow, Yang-Mills flow, and curvature flows);

We consider a range of problems from very pure to vey applied, rom heoretical to computational. We have active collaborations with a number of groups inside Australia and around the world. Our members hold 4 current ARC Discovery Grants.
