The School has research strengths across Pure Mathematics, Applied Mathematics and Statistics. All the Research groups are internationally-leading, and attract researchers, postgraduate students and collaborators from across the world. The School is also well-known for its research in the History of Mathematics.

  • Electron acceleration in auroral field-aligned currents 

    Cran-McGreehin, Alexandra P. (University of St Andrews, 2006-11-30) - Thesis
    Field-aligned currents at Earth's high latitudes are principally carried by accelerated electrons. Current densities, typically ~µAm⁻² at ionospheric altitudes, are sustained by parallel potential drops of ~100 - 1000 V. ...
  • Modelling solar coronal magnetic field evolution 

    Goldstraw, Erin Elizabeth (University of St Andrews, 2019-12-03) - Thesis
    Footpoint motions at the photosphere can inject energy into the magnetic field in the solar corona. This energy is then released in the corona as heat. There are many mathematical approaches to model the evolution of these ...
  • Mathematical modelling of cancer invasion and metastatic spread 

    Franssen, Linnea Christin (University of St Andrews, 2019-12-03) - Thesis
    Metastatic spread—the dissemination of cancer cells from a primary tumour with subsequent re-colonisation at secondary sites in the body—causes around 90% of cancer-related deaths. Mathematical modelling may provide a ...
  • Estimating abundance of African great apes 

    Howe, Eric J. (University of St Andrews, 2019-12-03) - Thesis
    All species and subspecies of African great apes are listed by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature as endangered or critically endangered, and populations continue to decline. As human populations and ...
  • Theoretical models of charged particle acceleration motivated by solar flares 

    Borissov, Alexei (University of St Andrews, 2019-06-25) - Thesis
    In this thesis we examine non-thermal particle behaviour in the presence of modelled electromagnetic fields motivated by various aspects of solar flares. We first investigate particle dynamics in magnetic reconnection ...
