The aim of this project is to advance our understanding of fundamental computational problems concerning the long-term behaviour of linear dynamical systems.
In this project, the focus is shifted to dynamical systems which are defined using arbitrary real numbers. The formal framework for this is the bit-model of real computation, where real numbers are encoded as second-order objects. This approach allows us to incorporate transcendental and inexact data, while at the same time avoiding the aforementioned undecidability and hardness results.
A particular emphasis will be placed on computability and complexity of positivity and inequality problems for univariate holonomic functions or sequences.
The project is suitable for students with a background in (theoretical) computer science or mathematics. The student will employ a synthesis of numerical and symbolic methods, combining tools from computability, computational complexity, analysis (differential equations, analytic number theory), topology, and algebra (real algebraic geometry, quantifier elimination). Prior knowledge or experience in one or more of these areas are desirable, but not strictly necessary.
To be considered for the Scholarship, you must:
- hold an undergraduate degree at 2.1 level in Computer Science, Mathematics or
- hold a closely related discipline, or an appropriate master’s degree with a minimum overall grade at ‘Merit’ (or Non-UK equivalent as defined by Swansea University).
- If applicable – IELTS 6.5 overall (with at least 6.0 in each individual component) or Swansea recognized equivalent.
- meet the requirements of the program to be pursued.
