Prospective postgraduates (MPhil/PhD): enquiries for positions are welcome provided: you have a first-class, or equivalent bachelors/masters degree; you have formulated a sensible, short research plan based on KAS's interests; you have actively sought out eligible scholarship programmes. You will need to be good at maths, experimentation and computation, and have read the relevant literature.

Prospective exchange/internship students: be advised that you will need over 1000 UK pounds per month for departmental fees/living costs in Cambridge, and that there are no funds here to support this; evidence of first-class, or near to, performance in previous exams is required; E-mails that are obviously part of a larger mail-shot will be deleted. In other words, be specific and personal.

Prospective industrial collaborators: enquiries for problem solving/idea development are welcome; please E-mail KAS/SDG with a summary of your requirements and they will reply as quickly as they can.

Prospective Part IIB dissertation students: KAS will not offer projects for 2017/18 because he will be on sabbatical leave during that academic year.

Teaching materials for 2016/17: already available on MOODLE.
