## Projects for PhD positions

Numerical analysis and spectral theory for partial differential equations with memory.

Contact: Christian Engström

PDEs are key tools in the modeling of processes in science and engineering. Many state-of-the-art PDE models in physics, finance, and biology include fractional derivatives to model long-range structural stochasticity and terms that represent a time delay. The project concerns breakthrough development in analysis and numerical analysis of (fractional) partial differential equations (PDEs) with memory. The aim of the project is to develop mathematical and numerical analysis that results in robust and very fast numerical methods that can be used to build digital twins of our world. The mathematical theory and new numerical methods provide a cornerstone in the development of efficient machine learning algorithms for PDEs and optimization with PDE constraints.

It is within the project possible to focus on (i) efficient numerical methods for the time-evolution problem, with applications to scientific machine learning and optimization (ii) new spectral theory and functional analysis for operator functions that is related to PDEs with memory.

The project will provide training in modern analysis or numerical analysis with applications in contemporary science and engineering, thus equipping the student with highly desirable skills for working in both industry and academia.

The project is part of a very active research area the Ph.D. student will benefit from existing collaborations in the research area with Durham University (UK), University of Zagreb (Croatia), and University of Bern (Switzerland).

We are looking for a highly motivated, enthusiastic, and curiosity-driven researcher. You have, or will shortly acquire, an M.Sc. degree in the field of applied mathematics, mathematical analysis, or a closely related study program. You have good team spirit and like to work in an internationally oriented environment. You are proficient in English.

The project is related to several ongoing national and international projects and the groups

## Analytic micro-lokal analysis via the Bargmann transform

Contact: Joachim Toft

Pseudo-differential operators emerged in the 1930s in quantum physics for quantization (i.e. finding suitable transitions between observables in classical mechanics and quantum mechanics). A pseudo-differential calculus is a certain rule that transfer a function, defined in the phase space, to an operator. This function is called the symbol of the operator. The function corresponds to an observable classical mechanics and the operator is the corresponding observable in quantum mechanics.

Pseudo-differential operators fell somewhat into oblivion, but return to scene during 1960s in mathematics, initially to find convenient ways to invert certain differential operators. Later on, they became important in several other fields. For example, in time frequency analysis and signal processing, pseudo-differential operators are used to model non-stationary filters and to sort out noise.

The Bargmann transform transfers functions and (ultra) distributions on R^n to analytical functions, or more generally, to power series expansions on C^n. Correspondingly, operators can be transferred to so-called analytical pseudo-differential operators (also called Wick operators). Ideas for this appeared in the 1970s, but some of the fundamental continuity investigations were performed first during the past recent years. The advantage of this approach is that the objects are analytical functions, which possess several special structures, convenient in calculations and applications.

Similarly as for regular differential operators, one picks a function (still called a symbol) and arrange an operator. For analytical pseudo-differential operators, however, both the symbol and the functions that the operators act on, are analytical functions.

The project aims at, among others:

- Finding new conditions on the symbols to the analytic pseudo-differential operators, to guarantee suitable continuity properties
- Investigations of propagations of singularities (certain types of so-called wave-front sets).
- Finding characterizations of certain types of spaces of analytic functions.

We are looking for a person with enthusiasm and good knowledge in mathematical analysis. It is extra meritorious for the applicant to possess good knowledge in English.

## Stochastic and deterministic variations in ecological, epidemiological or economical systems

Contact: Nacira Agram, Astrid Hilbert , Torsten Lindström , and Roger Pettersson

Formulating models using systems of differential equations is a standard procedure for taking into account the total effect of several different interacting processes. The solutions that arise are generally very complicated. Qualitative analysis involves analyzing well-chosen properties of the solutions instead. The long-term behaviour of the solutions becomes more important than the solutions themselves.

Systems of differential equations arise in many different applications and we concentrate primarily on ecological, epidemiological and economical systems. In these systems, species or market players can, for example, interact by competing with each other or parasitizing on each other. In some cases one can observe large variations over time and in others not. The need to be able to regulate and optimize the systems considered can be substantial.

Reasons for the variations are important for the possibilities of making predictions and controlling the observed systems. Sometimes there are mechanisms that cause purely random outbreaks and variations as in epidemiology, while systems that describe food chains can give rise to deterministic fluctuations with much larger predictability. In economic applications, predictions can be subjected to large uncertainty.

There is a variety of things to keep in mind when beginning the analysis of a system that potentially gives rise to variation over time. First, each model is a simplification of reality and one must ask to what extent features excluded from the model can affect the results. Within qualitative analysis, the concept of structural stability has been developed to deal with this type of omission. If the model is structurally stable, the results are not affected by small disturbances that result from what you have chosen not to include. Another question that often arises is how the model is able to handle parts of the system that can be isolated and studied separately. Various ways to ensure that a suitable model is analyzed are included in the project.

A qualitative analysis of a model's long-term behavior provides answers to a wide range of questions, but there is often reason to supplement such an analysis with numerical simulations. Such simulations must be validated by requiring that they coincide with other analysis. Any discrepancies must be possible to explain and often give rise to the need for fairly in-depth analyzes of the algorithms used.

When you build a system of differential equations, you start from the mechanisms you choose to include in a system. But everyone knows that a child can learn to ride a bike without knowing anything about relevant balance equations. If we start from data, can we then build up another type of model with help of statistical models? What qualitative characteristics do models that are built on the basis of adaptation to data have in relation to models that are built on the basis of mechanisms and what limitations do new areas such as machine learning have?

Knowledge of differential equations, stochastic processes and dynamic systems is important for the project.

## Reinforcement learning for optimization and operations research

Contact: Karl-Olof Lindahl

The main goal of the project is to develop robust algorithms in reinforcement learning with applications in optimization and control of dynamical systems. Mathematically, the project lies in the intersection between dynamical systems, optimization and mathematical statistics. As a student, you need to have a good foundation in mathematics at the basic and advanced level, as well as good knowledge and skills in programming.

Reinforcement learning is a hot area in machine learning and artificial intelligence. It is used to solve complex optimization problems that form the basis for advanced decision-making in optimal planning and operation of energy systems, resource management, robotics, image recognition, self-driving cars, stock portfolio selection, to name a few examples. It can also be said that the area is about maximizing future accumulated rewards over time for an intelligent system operating in an environment.

The project specifically concerns distribution-based reinforcement learning (DRL). The total reward over time is characterized in these cases by a stochastic variable whose distribution function is then to be estimated. In more classical approaches to reinforcement learning, the focus is on the expected value of this distribution rather than the distribution itself. The project is based on Bellemere, Dabney and Muno's work "A Distributional Perspective on Reinforcement Learning" where it is justified why distribution-based reinforcement learning can lead to better approximate learning.

Development, experiments, and analysis of algorithms in this field include functional analysis (metric spaces, projections, transforms), probability theory and statistics (measure theory, stochastic convergence), optimization and theory of neural networks. Computer experiments, implementation and testing are important elements in the research and involve a lot of programming work.

In the project we develop:

- Specialized algorithms for machine learning and its applications
- Code for implementation
- Theory and analysis methods for robustness

The project will be performed within the research theme " AI and machine learning for optimization and operations research " at LNU.

## What does the third-cycle subject area mathematics comprise?

At Linnaeus University, the field and course of study referred to as mathematics covers a wide spectrum of activities and includes both pure and applied mathematics. Mathematics is an abstract and general science for problem solving and methods development. All research within the field of the subject of mathematics includes development, usage, or analysis of methods.

Within pure mathematics, the abstraction level is so high that the way of presenting a problem can be analysed outside of their original context. Crucial causal relationships are isolated and studied separately. Conceptualisation and concept formation, and use of appropriate terminology, becomes central. Since the discipline of mathematics provides the tools we need to analyse, question and develop scientific methods, it plays a key role in all science.

Within applied mathematics, the link to practical problem solving is clear and is characterised by a deep understanding of the subject of mathematics per se, as well as its application. Innovation and new ways of thinking arise in various different ways, and new methods and approaches are applied to classic problems, or known methods are transferred to new areas of application whereby the presentation of the problems which arise are analysed.

The applications are primarily in fields where a high degree of precision is sought and where the far-reaching predictions are possible. Examples represented in our programme include physics, cryptography and signal processing. Mathematical methods have recently also become established in many sciences where the possibilities of predictions and precision remain more limited. At Linnaeus University, such activities are found within the fields of biology, medical research and economics to mention a few. The goal of the introduction of mathematical methods in such activities is to make all science more quantitative.

Graduate studies in mathematics can contain both pure and applied mathematics, in varying proportions. Doctoral students normally choose a specialisation for their studies in conjunction with the commencement of their graduate programme.

Studies can also be made in mathematics directed towards mathematics education .

## Doctoral studies in Mathematical Sciences

Within mathematical sciences we study questions of a mathematical character, either from a purely theoretical perspective or directed towards practical applications. In either case, the mathematical problem and its properties is the main focus. The research is based on mathematical proofs and/or computer-assisted calculations.

Doctoral studies in Mathematical Sciences are offered by the Department of Mathematics (MAI), and the Department of Science and Technology (ITN). Mathematical Sciences comprise the following subject areas:

## Computational Mathematics

Computational Mathematics is about the development and analysis of numerical methods and algorithms to solve mainly technical and scientific problems, formulated as mathematical models. Our research group in this area is successfully examining numerical methods for use on time-independent partial differential equations.

## Mathematics

Mathematical statistics.

Mathematical Statistics is dedicated to probability theory and statistical inference theory. We are skilled in theoretical probability theory and multivariate statistics.

## Optimisation

Optimisation deals with theories and methods to analyse and solve mathematical decision problems. In general optimisation, MAI has one of the most prominent groups in Sweden, with extensive experience in practical optimisation and a well-balanced mix between mathematics and applications.

## Interdisciplinary Mathematics

Interdisciplinary Mathematics covers research which involves two areas. The main area is within mathematical sciences (computational mathematics, mathematics, mathematical statistics, or optimisation), and the other is an area outside mathematical sciences, involving subjects such as physics, biology or medicine.

Teaching is based on lectures, seminars, group work and supervision. You are expected to actively participate in seminars, guest lectures and conferences.

Doctoral studies in mathematical sciences prepare for a continued academic career involving research and teaching as well as for a professional life outside the academic world. Mathematical breadth and depth, and the ability to absorb new theory and digest complex events are in high demand across a large part of the labour market. PhD-level mathematicians are wanted in IT security, cryptology, resource optimisation, simulations for example in pharmaceutical development, autonomous systems, risk analysis in finance and insurance, meteorology, communication systems, and many other areas.

The impending future challenges, not least concerning sustainable development and climate transition, require significant mathematical expertise, both directly for example in optimisation, mathematical modelling, and dynamical systems, and indirectly in that all relevant science and technology developments rely on a mathematical framework.

In order to join us as a student, you must have a keen interest in mathematics, regardless of which field you wish to specialise in.

## PhD in Mathematics?

## As PhD student you are constantly challenged

Aban Husain started her PhD studies at LiU in February 2022. After her master's studies, she worked for 18 months as a machine learning engineer at a small AI start-up company.

## Mathematics is exciting and creative

Axel Tiger Norkvist started studying mathematics at LiU in 2013. He has now been working on his PhD for four years and plans to defend his doctoral thesis next year.

## Doctoral studies at Linköping University

If you want to gain a profound understanding of a particular field, doctoral studies at LiU could be for you.

## Current research projects in Mathematics

## Nonlinear Potential Theory

The research group is mainly interested in analysis on metric spaces, and in particular nonlinear potential theory associated with p-harmonic functions and quasiminimizers in Euclidean and metric spaces.

## Differential Equations and Analysis on Metric Spaces

Differential equations describe many real-world phenomena but can rarely be solved exactly. We therefore study properties of their solutions in other ways, in very general situations, similarly to creating an identikit of an unknown criminal.

## Modern Multivariate Statistical Analysis

Nowadays there is a great need to analyse complex high-dimensional data. Modern theories must be developed through the knowledge of the classical methods of multivariate statistics.

## Teaching and learning statistics at the secondary level

Research shows that it is challenging for students to learn statistical concepts and methods. Teachers need preparedness and tools to be able to support their students. The project therefore studies the teaching and learning of statistics.

## Mathematical Modelling of the Blood Circulatory System

Mathematical models of the circulatory system can be used in order to better understand the system and so help diagnose blood-vascular diseases and other problems while also enabling planning for the treatment of these diseases.

## Mathematics and algorithms for intelligent decision-making

On the journey towards sustainability, our contribution is to develop mathematical models and solution methods for practically relevant but computationally challenging problems in scheduling and resource allocation.

## Research collaboration in Mathematics with low income countries and regions

The Department of Mathematics contributes to the development of capacity for higher education and research in low income countries and regions through collaborative projects in Africa and Asia.

## Numerical Solutions of Time-Dependent Partial Differential Equations

Well-posedness of the governing partial differential equations lead to effective and accurate numerical methods for the analysis of physical processes in science and engineering.

## Graph Theory

The research group in graph theory at Linköping University is primarily interested in classic graph theory with a particular focus on graph coloring and Hamiltonian graph theory.

## PhD programmes

When you apply for a phd programme in sweden, you’re actually applying for a job. yeah, you read that right. 👀.

“Do a master’s here – I’d say it’s a very good step to doing a PhD in Sweden. I did my master’s at Malmö University and now I’m doing a PhD at Lund University” – Sanjay, Malmö University. Photo: Oskar Omne

So that means – no tuition fees, no scholarships. But you’ll receive a monthly salary instead. Nice, eh? And that’s why available PhD positions are listed on a university’s job board.

## How to apply for a PhD position? You’ll apply directly to the university.

Just so you know, there’s no centralised application process. And things like requirements and application dates? This kind of stuff is decided by each department. But we do know that you’ll need to have a master’s degree – in the same field of study – and a great level of English to apply for a PhD here. You might even need to be fluent in Swedish. But that’ll depend on the subject.

Mathematical Sciences is a joint department at Chalmers University of Technology and the University of Gothenburg, and it offers high-quality research and education in the fields of mathematics.

The mathematical sciences explore the basic concepts and laws of thought. They are fundamental and indispensable to a large part of modern science and engineering. Progress in other disciplines is often linked to an increased use of mathematics. Mathematics is also a subject in itself, and fundamental research is a necessary condition for its many applications. Some of our information, as calendar and news, is found on Chalmers’ web. See links below.

## Education and research

We offer an international master’s programme in mathematical sciences and several doctoral student positions every year. Our research areas cover a wide range of mathematical sciences.

## Collaborations

Our research library is also open to students and the general public. Meeting place Mathematics collects activities for schools and teachers, but also for an interested general public.

## What happens at the department

Our research areas have about ten seminar series. All calendar posts and news are found at the Chalmers web, see below. Take a virtual tour in our premises (texts in Swedish).
