  • Source modelling at the dawn of gravitational-wave astronomy 

    Gerosa, Davide (Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, University of Cambridge, 2016-11-08)
    The age of gravitational-wave astronomy has begun. Gravitational waves are propagating spacetime perturbations ($\textit{“ripples in the fabric of space-time”}$) predicted by Einstein’s theory of General Relativity. These ...
  • Numerical analysis of the Fokas method in two and three dimensions 

    Crooks, Kevin (Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, University of Cambridge, 2016-10-05)
    This thesis considers the numerical solution to elliptic boundary value problems (BVPs) in convex domains. Specifically we look at the two-dimensional problem in a polygon, and the three dimensional problem in a polyhedron. ...
  • Modelling the effects on building temperatures of phase change materials 

    Bonnebaigt, Rachael (Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, University of Cambridge, 2016-11-08)
    In this thesis, three problems motivated by the possibility of use of phase change materials in buildings are presented. First, a model for the response of phase change material (PCM) to a varying room temperature is ...
  • Generalised nonlinear stability of stratified shear flows: adjoint-based optimisation, Koopman modes, and reduced models 

    Eaves, Thomas Scott (Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, University of Cambridge, 2016-10-04)
    In this thesis I investigate a number of problems in the nonlinear stability of density stratified plane Couette flow. I begin by describing the history of transient growth phenomena, and in particular the recent application ...
