MATHEMATICS AND PHYSICS
Head of Doctoral School:: Professor Jesper
Møller (http://www.math.aau.dk/~jm/)
The doctoral school is a joint offering of the Department of
Mathematical Sciences and the Department of Physics and
Nanotechnology.
The Department of Mathematical Sciences (http://www.math.aau.dk/)
focuses on areas with a particular relevance to technical and
computer science applications based on fundamental, mathematical
disciplines, and on specialisations of interest to physics. Three
areas are particularly emphasised: applied mathematical analysis,
where interest focuses on problems from both classical physics and
quantum physics and the theory of partial differential equations;
discrete mathematics, where emphasis is on graph and coding theory;
probabilistic and statistical models and methods, with focus on
stochastic networks, spatial statistics, and bio and forensic
statistics.
Research areas:
Applied mathematical analysis
 Applied mathematical analysis
 Discrete mathematics
 Probability and statistics
The Department of Physics and Nanotechnology (http://www.physics.aau.dk/)
concentrates on topics with relations to nano science and
technology. Three areas are particularly emphasised: nano optics,
with emphasis on linear and nonlinear light scattering by
nanostructures, multiple scattering leading to band gap and
localization effects and instrumentation for nearfield optical
microscopy; nanostructures with focus on synthesis,
characterization and theoretical modelling of electronic structure
and optical properties of nanosized particles, wires and thin
films; surface science, where the research topics and interfaces,
catalysis, self assembled monolayers, and synthesis and analysis
of thin bimetallic films on the nanometer scale.
Research areas:
 Nano optics
 Electronic and optical properties of nanostructures
 Surface and interface physics
