|Department||Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics|
Doctor of Philosophy - PhD
Research in the department can be divided into the following broad areas: applied and computational analysis, astrophysics, geophysics, fluid and solid mechanics, mathematical biology, quantum information, high energy physics, and general relativity and cosmology. Each student in the department of applied mathematics and theoretical physics (DAMTP) has a supervisor who is responsible for guiding their research and monitoring their progress. Each student is admitted to work within a particular subject area, and often with a specific supervisor; some students will work in close collaboration with their supervisor, or as part of a larger research group, while others may work more independently; collaborative projects may involve other researchers or groups outside Cambridge, in the UK or worldwide.
