Since the early seminal work of mathematical physicist and 2021 Nobel Prize winner Giorgio Parisi and the revolutionary work of 2014 Fields Medalist Sir Martin Hairer, stochastic partial differential equations (SPDEs) have become a very active research field with many cutting-edge and challenging research topics and many applications to real-world problems. In this work, we will look at the qualitative and quantitative properties of stochastic heat equations, stochastic conservation laws, and stochastic Burgers/KPZ equations driven by Brownian motion and/or fractional Brownian motion, alpha-stable processes, and point processes. (Poisson and beyond). The method is made up of techniques from probability, analysis, and computing. 

This task should be easy for students who know a lot about probability theory, functional analysis, and/or numerical analysis, and who know a little bit about partial differential equations. Before starting this project, the student would learn about a wide range of methods from areas like stochastic processes and random fields, stochastic calculus, computational and statistical methods with simulations, and some topics on partial differential equations. Then, the well-posedness of the important stochastic equations and the right numerical methods would be worked out. (if interested). They would also work on making new formulas that could be used in complex modeling in industrial and applied mathematics.


About the Scholarship Provider:

Since its founding in 1920, Swansea University has made a worldwide impact due to its dedication to research as its guiding principle. According to the 2019 editions of the Times and the Sunday Times Good University Guide, it is one of the best 30 schools in the United Kingdom. Not only that, but it’s in the top 30 universities in the entire globe. This institution has earned a stellar name for both its teaching and its research, placing it among the world’s finest universities. (Times Higher Education Rankings 2020). The university was honored not only by being designated Welsh University of the Year for 2019 and 2020, but also by being awarded Gold by the national Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF).

It is regularly ranked among the top 10 British universities for graduate employability. (Destination of Leavers from Higher Education 2018). Swansea is the country’s second-largest metropolis and is known for its rich cultural heritage. Swansea University has stunning waterfront campuses, making it a popular choice among prospective foreign students. Two campuses at Swansea institution have received the coveted Green Flag Status Award, making it the only institution in Wales to do so. Swansea University is now firmly established as one of the most research-intensive universities in the United States, thanks to a seventy percent rise in research income over the past decade.


Both the Singleton Park and Bay campuses are home to various academic departments and schools, including the College of Science, College of Engineering, College of Arts and Humanities, College of Human and Health Sciences, Hillary Rodham Clinton School of Law, School of Management, and Swansea University Medical School. The British Computer Society (BCS), the British Psychological Society (BPS), the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS), the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), the Bar Council of India (BCI), the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), the British Cosmetology Association (BCA), and the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA).

Its graduates have gone on to become influential figures in a wide range of disciplines, and the institution has compiled a list of their names. Among the many notable people who attended Swansea University are the actress Annabelle Apsion, the president of Kellogg College at Oxford, Geoffrey Thomas, Jonathan Hill, Jason Mohammad, Chris White, a referee for the English national rugby team, Graham Ryder, a geologist, lunar scientist, and recipient of the National Medal of Science, and many more. If incoming freshmen and graduate students want to be assured of on-campus housing, they must file their housing applications by June 30. Roughly 4,500 students have their housing needs met by Residential Services. Around four kilometers from the main Singleton Campus, you’ll find the biggest building with more than a thousand rooms. Standard dormitory rooms and suites with private bathrooms are the norm on most schools.


Choices in Student Housing Swansea is a university-run group that assists students in finding private rental accommodation and arranging group living situations in the city. Swansea also has dormitory-style student housing buildings. Swansea, the second-largest metropolis in Wales, is located on the southern coast, roughly 70 kilometers west of Cardiff. The city center and the beach are both within walking distance from the educational campuses. Despite being more well-known for its watersports and stunning scenery along its coastline, the city’s nightlife and cultural scene are especially popular among students from the United Kingdom. Although the sciences have traditionally been a strength, the arts’ rising international profile has recently proven to be a significant boon. With a graduate employment rate of 97%, Swansea University is consistently ranked among the top 15 UK institutions.

The National Student Survey consistently ranks Swansea University as one of the top ten universities in the United Kingdom, and students there regularly rank their academic experience as one of the best in the nation. Swansea has a low expense of living compared to other UK major cities. The city is so exciting and friendly that its inhabitants often refer to it as their “second home.”
