Faculty of Mathematics

 

The four courses in the Michaelmas Term are intended to provide a broad educational background for any student preparing to start a PhD in fluid dynamics. The courses in the Lent Term are more specialized and in some cases (see the course descriptions) build on the Michaelmas Term material.

Please find here the introduction and pre-requisites for the Continuum Mechanics course group.
