The power of nanotechnology is rooted in its potential to revolutionise technology and industry, including information technology, biotechnology, medicine, aerospace, defence, energy and the environment. In order to fully realise the promise of nanotechnology, all the scientific disciplines must be brought to bear, including mathematics and mathematical modelling which can provide insights into the many novel results that are being reported in the experimental literature every week. In the Nanomechanics Group, we employ mathematical modelling using integral calculus, geometry, the calculus of variations, classical mechanics and many other mathematical techniques in order to understand and explain the unique behaviour of nanoscale systems.
