Discipline Area: Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Earth Sciences
Fellowship project summary
Breakthrough methods for noncommutative calculus (FL170100052)
This project aims to solve hard, outstanding problems which have impeded our ability to progress in the area of quantum or noncommutative calculus. Calculus has provided an invaluable tool to science, enabling scientific and technological revolutions throughout the past two centuries. The project will initiate a program of collaboration among top mathematical researchers from around the world and bring together two separate mathematical areas into a powerful new set of tools. The outcomes from the project will impact research at the forefront of mathematical physics and other sciences and enhance Australia’s reputation and standing.
Australian Research Council funding: $2,107,500
