Student projects are available in the areas of dynamical systems and ergodic theory. Possible topics include the analytical and computational study of metastable and coherent structures. Such structures encode important properties of the long term behaviour of the underlying system. They have been used by scientists to analyse and quantify natural phenomena such as oceanic eddies and atmospheric vortices.
