Miles H. Wheeler


I am a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Analysis in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Bath. Before coming to Bath, I was a University Assistant at the Faculty of Mathematics at the University of Vienna, and before that I was a postdoc at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences supported by an NSF fellowship. I am interested in partial differential equations coming from fluid mechanics, especially “large-amplitude” solutions that cannot be captured using perturbative techniques.

Expository notes and talks

For a more accessible introduction to the sort of work I do, see this expository talk on solitary waves and fronts (and Section 5 of [6]), or this short introduction to local and global bifurcation theory. The talk is from a series on steady water waves in the ONEPAS seminar, and the notes are from a 2019 lecture to a group of masters students in mathematics and physics.


Recent teaching:

For a full list of past teaching see my CV. David Lowry-Duda and I also wrote an expository paper aimed at undergraduates which appeared in the American Mathematical Monthly and won an award from the MAA.
