Department of Mathematics at the University of Sussex is offering postgraduate research studentship for a project on Algorithmic Construction of Finsler-Lyapunov Functions. This project mainly covers the areas of Dynamical Systems theory, the development and analysis of algorithms as well as programming in C++. Students in this project will be accomplishing their goal to derive and implement an algorithm to construct such a Finsler-Lyapunov function. This studentship includes £13863 per annum tax-free bursary and waiver of UK/EU fees each year for 3.5 years. The application deadline is 15 July 2014.
Study Subject(s): Studentship is awarded for a research project on Algorithmic Construction of Finsler-Lyapunov Functions.
Course Level: Studentship is available for undertaking postgraduate research project.
Scholarship Provider: University of Sussex, UK
Scholarship can be taken at: UK
Eligibility: Candidates should consider following points:
-Only UK and EU residents are eligible.
-UK residents are eligible for full awards, including fees and maintenance.
-EU residents are eligible for awards covering fees only, but EU students who have studied in the UK for the previous three years may be eligible for a full award. EU resident applicants should check this page before applying.
-Applicants should hold, or expect to hold, a good honours degree (first or upper second class) in Mathematics or a related subject. Experience in Dynamical Systems and/or programming in C++ would be an advantage.
Scholarship Open for International Students: Residents of UK and EU can apply for this postgraduate research studentship.
Scholarship Description: The goal of this project is to derive and implement an algorithm to construct such a Finsler-Lyapunov function and to show that for stable systems, the algorithm will always succeed in constructing a Finsler-Lyapunov function, establishing a constructive converse theorem. The successful candidate will benefit from the research environment within the Department of Mathematics at the University of Sussex as well as from interactions with the group of Assoc. Prof. Sigurdur Hafstein (Reykjavik University, Iceland).
