Complex analytic geometry is a very broad area of mathematics straddling differential geometry, algebraic geometry and analysis. Much of the interactions between mathematics and theoretical physics, especially string theory, channels through complex analytic geometry.

]]>In this module, students work in teams of 4 on a structured, but open ended project in an advanced topic related to their degree. For projects with marks above 70%, there is the possibility of publishing an article in the Plymouth Student Scientist journal. For example, see this article on the Riemann hypothesis.

On Wednesday 14th March all the students on the module made 20 minute presentations on their projects, to the staff on the module and other interested students.

To give an insight into the topics covered, the list of talk titles is below.

- Shape of a Drum
- Hydrogen Atom
- Finite Element Method
- Illumination
- Heat Equation
- Asset Allocation
- Bank Marketing Campaign
- Bike Sharing Systems
- Portfolios
- Income Classification
- Office Occupancy
