Optimisation of the population Monte Carlo algorithm : application to cosmology.
In this thesis we study the Population Monte Carlo (PMC) algorithm and utilise simulations to improve the efficiency of the algorithm by optimising the algorithm parameters. We then ap ply these optimisation results to ...
Mathematical modeling of cancer treatments and the role of the immune system response to tumor invasion.
Despite the success of traditional cancer treatments, a definite cure to several cancers does not exist. Further, the traditional cancer treatments are highly toxic and have a relatively low efficacy. Current research ...

Models in isotropic coordinates with equation of state.
In this thesis we consider spacetimes which are static and spherically symmetric related to the Einstein and Einstein-Maxwell system of equations in isotropic coordinates. We study both neutral and charged matter ...
Modelling waterborne diseases.
Waterborne diseases are among the major health problems threatening the life of individuals globally. This thesis investigates the dynamics of waterborne disease under different conditions and consequently determines ...
