Carries out research of worldclass excellence in a broad range of subjects across applied mathematics and theoretical physics
The Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP) is one of two Mathematics Departments at the University of Cambridge, the other being the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics (DPMMS). The two Departments together constitute the Faculty of Mathematics, and are responsible for the teaching of Mathematics and its applications within the Mathematical Tripos.
DAMTP has a 50year tradition of carrying out research of worldclass excellence in a broad range of subjects across applied mathematics and theoretical physics. Members of DAMTP have made seminal theoretical advances in the development of mathematical techniques and in the application of mathematics, combined with physical reasoning, to many different areas of science. A unique strength is the G K Batchelor Laboratory, in which fundamental experimental science is also performed. Research students have always played a crucial role in DAMTP research, working on demanding research problems under the supervision of leading mathematical scientists and, in many cases, moving on to become research leaders themselves. The current aims of DAMTP are to continue this tradition, in doing so broadening the range of subject areas studied and using new mathematical and computational techniques.

The scattering of spinning hadrons from lattice QCD
(20191130)Hadron spectroscopy is predominantly the study of resonances that decay via the strong interaction into a multitude of stable hadrons, such as the pion. The vast majority of resonances decay via an intermediate hadron with ... 
Linear and weakly nonlinear boundary layer acoustics in a lined duct
(20200101)In this thesis I look at the effect of boundary layer flow on the acoustics of an acoustic lining. Acoustic linings are used in aircraft engine ducts to reduce the sound they produce. They typically consist of an array of ... 
Acoustic Scattering in Sheared Flow
(20200321)Airframe noise, the noise of an aircraft in flight not due to the engine or other mechanical devices, is often a major contribution to the sound heard from an aircraft during landing approach. Over the past few decades ...
