Dr David Barton


I have a broad range of research interests across the field of applied mathematics, but I focus particularly on engineering related applications. My specialities include

  • mathematical modelling (mostly engineering related, but I enjoy broader challenges and I’ve done some work in the bio-sciences),
  • the dynamics of nonlinear systems,
  • numerical methods for dynamical systems (particularly in the area of bifurcation analysis), and
  • systems with delay (mostly delay differential equations).

At the moment, I am branching out into stochastic dynamics and, in particular, I’m looking the links between mathematical models and physical reality — can we use numerical methods designed to investigate mathematical models on physical experiments? (Answer: YES!)

If you are interested in working with me on any of these topics, please feel free to drop me an email (see my contact details).
