Title: Rare Events in Dynamical Systems via Transfer Operator Techniques
Supervisor: Wael Bahsoun (; phone +44-15-09-222883).
Nature of work: Theory
Area: Mathematics: Ergodic Theory and Dynamical Systems
Brief description: The study of rare events in dynamical systems is currently one of the most active branches of research in ergodic theory. In part, this is due to their interesting applications in earth and ocean sciences. An example of a rare event in dynamical systems appears in the study of ‘open’ systems where orbits infrequently escape from the domain, typically by falling into a small “hole” in the phase space. The goal of the project is to use spectral techniques (via the so called Perron-Frobenius operator) to approximate escape rates in open systems and to compute the Hausdorff dimension of survival sets.
How to apply:

All applications should be made online at  Under programme name, select ‘Mathematical Sciences’.
Please quote reference number:  MA/WB/2018.
Closing date of advert: 16th February 2018.

Funding and eligibility:
The studentships are open to UK/EU graduates with backgrounds in relevant disciplines and who are articulate, well qualified and highly motivated.  These studentships can provide a £14,553 per annum (2017 rate) tax-free stipend plus tuition fees at the UK/EU rate.  International (non-EU) students may apply however the total value of the studentship will be used towards the cost of the International tuition fee in the first instance.  Please see individual studentship funding criteria for full details and eligibility conditions.
Funded studentships will be awarded on a competitive basis across the projects to successful applicants who have applied for the above-mentioned projects.
Successful candidates will be expected to register for 1st October 2018 or as soon as possible thereafter.
