The Department of Applied Mathematics is one of the smaller departments in the Faculty of Science at UJ. At present we have only five permanent academic staff members and a departmental secretary. Nevertheless, our research interests are varied and we offer a wide variety of courses at Honours level.
Research activities cover such areas as dynamical systems, computer algebra, quantum computing, partial differential equations, neural networks and photovoltaic device simulation.
Our undergraduate courses cover vector calculus and classical mechanics, differential equations, numerical analysis, optimisation theory, neural networks and genetic algorithms, and quantum computing.
At Honours level we offer courses in partial differential equations, numerical analysis, computer algebra, dynamical systems, neural networks, multilinear algebra, Lie groups and algebras, object-oriented programming, relativity theory, and quantum field theory.
Masters and Doctoral projects are related to the research activities of the Department.
