Students and NAG

Student Sponsorships, Internships and awards

NAG was founded on academic collaboration and continues today to work collaboratively with expert individuals and organisations from industry and academia all over the world. Many of our existing staff first worked with us as students or interns. We take pride in the students that we sponsor, give internships to and award via our Student Award Program.

Sponsored PhD projects have included:

  • Investigating new mathematical algorithms for massive parallelism
  • Algorithms for Cholesky and QR Factorizations, and the Semidefinite Generalized Eigenvalue Problem
  • Adaptive Solvers for Elliptical and Parabolic PDEs
  • Multi-level Monte Carlo Methods for the solution of Stochastic Differential Equations
  • How the functions of applied mathematics should be remodelled for optimal evaluation in GPU computing environments
  • Numerical Methods for Stochastic Differential Equations
  • Numerical methods for derivative free optimization

Sponsored MSc projects have included:

  • Pole-vaulting methods for ordinary differential equations
  • Radial Basis Functions implementations
  • Optimization Problems in Structured Numerical Linear Algebra
  • Hypergeometric Function implementations

Recent interns have worked on:

  • The application of Algorithmic Differentiation (AD) to a NAG routine for solving systems of linear equations
  • Research on Bermudan Option Pricing Algorithms / investigating the Stochastic Grid Bundling Method
