  • Groups, Categories & Homological AlgebraMAST90068

    Offered:Not offered inYear:2019

    As well as being beautiful in its own right, algebra is used in many areas of mathematics, computer science and physics. This subject provides a grounding in several fundamental areas of modern advanced algebra including Lie groups, combinatorial group theory, category theory and homological alge...

  • Algebraic TopologyMAST90023

    Offered:Not offered inYear:2019

    This subject studies topological spaces and continuous maps between them. It demonstrates the power of topological methods in dealing with problems involving shape and position of objects and continuous mappings, and shows how topology can be applied to many areas, including geometry, analysis, g...

  • Introduction to String TheoryMAST90069

    Offered:Not offered inYear:2019

    The first half of this subject is an introduction to two-dimensional conformal field theory with emphasis on the operator formalism and explicit calculations. The second half is an introduction to string theory based on the first half. For concreteness, the representation theory of Virasoro algeb...

  • Approximation Algorithms and HeuristicsMAST90098

    Offered:Not offered inYear:2019

    Many discrete optimisation problems encountered in practice are too difficult to solve exactly in a reasonable time frame. Approximation algorithms and heuristics are the most widely used approaches for obtaining reasonably accurate solutions to such hard problems. This subject introduces the bas...

  • Advanced Elements of AnalyticsMAST90134

    Offered:Not offered inYear:2019

    This subject equips students with the practical skills to apply regression methods to health data using the statistical packages R and Stata, as well as a major emphasis on the interpretation and communication of results. Topics covered include: analysis of continuous outcomes with linear regress...

  • Physical Chemistry IIICHEM30001

    Offered:Not offered inYear:2019

    The subject includes lecture and practical components. This lecture component is based on the Physical Chemistry lectures from CHEM30016 (12 lectures) and those from an approved module relating to Physical Chemistry chosen from the topics offered in CHEM30017 (12 lectures). A limited selection of...

  • Mineral Exploration Through CoverERTH90030

    Offered:Not offered inYear:2019

    The main aim of the course is to present these exploration techniques largely in day trips to field based settings, supplemented by classroom-based information and practical exercises. Geochemical and geophysical exploration techniques will be covered in the course, using visited examples in the ...

  • Environmental GeochemistryERTH90029

    Offered:Not offered inYear:2019

    This course will cover a variety of aspects of environmental geochemistry, including equilibrium processes (thermodynamics, solubility, mineral precipitation, redox reactions), kinetics and rates of reactions, application of geochemical and isotopic tracers to understanding environmental processe...
