Mathematics

The most popular doctorate is the Doctor of Philosophy or Ph.D. Ph.D.s and other study doctorates prepare graduate student to launch new plans that add to the common knowledge base of the field. Candidates for and holders of Ph.D.s often seek professions as professors and researchers, but many also go on to different roles in the charitable, public, and private sectors.

Mathematics is a discipline that needs frequent studies, research and analysis of the legendary mathematical formulas. This training will help you understand the mathematical concepts. At the same time, you will come up with better ways to simplify the mathematical formulas to ease the understanding process especially for students.

Italy, officially the Italian Republic, is a unitary parliamentary republic within the European Union, located in Southern Europe. To the north, it borders France, Switzerland, Austria, and Slovenia along the Alps.

For all those who are interested in studying rich Italian culture and heritage, Trieste is the best place to visit. It has distinctive training institutions that provide quality education at a reasonable cost. Università degli Studi di Trieste is well known for good education system and support for students.

Doctoral Degrees in Mathematics in Trieste in Italy. Purpose of the PhD Course The PhD program in Geometry and Mathematical Physics focuses on the study of analytic and geometric aspects of physical phenomena that are of fundamental interest in both pure and applied sciences and covers wide spectrum of topics in modern algebraic and differential geometry and their applications. Research Topics Integrable systems in relation with differential, algebraic and symplectic geometry, as well as with the theory of random matrices, special functions and nonlinear waves, Frobenius manifolds Deformation theory and virtual classes moduli spaces of sheaves and of curves, in relation with supersymmetric gauge theories, strings, Gromov-Witten invariants, orbifolds and automorphisms Quantum groups, noncommutative Riemannian and spin geometry, applications to models in mathematical physics Mathematical methods of quantum mechanics Mathematical aspects of quantum Field Theory and String 
Theory Symplectic geometry, sub-riemannian geometry Geometry of quantum fields and strings Seminar on Hodge theory The students of the Geometry and Mathematical Physics sector organize a series of seminars on topics of Hodge Theory. The most recent placements after PHD at SISSA: Mathematical Sciences Research Institute Berkeley - USA, Harvard University, Cambridge - USA , Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford - UK, DAMTP, University of Cambridge - UK, Max Planck Institute, Bonn - Germany , École Polytechnique, Palaiseau - France General Rules The PhD programme consists in three/four years of study and research. The main selection procedure consists in an entrance examination. This is divided into two parts: in the written part applicants are asked to solve problems from a list given by the entrance committee. The oral exam consists in a discussion on the written test, on the topics studied in the univerisity curriculum, and possibly on the applicant's thesis for the university degree or on other scientific achievements. The applicant's scientific qualifications and references are also taken into account. Non-EU citizens may be admitted on the sole basis of their previous scientific activity, publications, and references, in a pre-selection procedure. They have to pass a "Qualifying Examination" at the end of their first year. Student may choose among different plans of study oriented to the different fields covered by their PhD course. In the first month of the PhD programme, the faculty approves the individual plans of study, taking into account the scientific interests of the students and the skills already acquired in the previous university studies. In the first year, students attend both basic and more advanced courses. To be admitted to the second year they are required to pass the examinations of the courses included in their plan of study. Students are invited to attend, without examinations, also some courses in fields different from those of their plan of study. At the end of the first year students start a research project, under the supervision of a faculty member or of an external collaborator approved by the faculty, in one of the research fields of the PhD programme. During the second and third year students work for their research projects, participate in the seminar activities of the PhD programme, and attend some courses. Examinations have to be passed only by students who worked in their first year in a different PhD programme. Students obtain the PhD degree after submitting their PhD thesis and defending it in front of an examination committee, whose members include SISSA staff members and international experts in the field. SISSA PhD in one of the courses of Mathematics Area is by law equivalent to the Italian degree of “Dottore di Ricerca in Matematica”. [-]

PhD in Mathematical Analysis, Modelling and Application

International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA)
Campus Full time 3 - 4 years August 2017 Italy Trieste

The aim of the PhD Course in Mathematical Analysis, Modelling, and Applications is to educate graduate students in the fields of mathematical analysis and mathematical modelling, and in the applications of mathematical and numerical analysis to science and technology. [+]

Purpose of the PhD Course The aim of the PhD Course in Mathematical Analysis, Modelling, and Applications is to educate graduate students in the fields of mathematical analysis and mathematical modelling, and in the applications of mathematical and numerical analysis to science and technology. The goal is to enable PhDs to work as high level researchers in these fields in universities, research institutes, and private companies. Research Topics The activity in Mathematical Analysis is mainly focused on ordinary and partial differential equations, on dynamical systems, on the calculus of variations, and on control theory. Connections of these topics with differential geometry and reduced order modeling are also developed. The activity in Mathematical Modelling is oriented to subjects for which the main technical tools come from mathematical analysis. The present themes are multiscale analysis, mechanics of materials, micromagnetics, modelling of biological systems, computational fluid and solid dynamics and problems related to control theory. The Applications of Mathematics developed in this course are related to the numerical analysis of partial differential equations and of control problems. This activity is developed in collaboration with MathLab for the study of problems coming from the real world, from industrial and medical applications, and from complex systems. Main research lines: Calculus of Variations and Multiscale Analysis Conservation Laws and Transport Problems Geometric Control Theory and Sub-Riemannian Geometry Mechanics of Materials and of Biological Systems Nonlinear Analysis Numerical Analysis Systems Biology The most recent placements after PhD at SISSA: Ecole Polytechnique (Palaiseau, France), University of Oxford (Oxford, UK), California Institute of Technology (Pasadena, USA), Carnegie Mellon University (Pittsburgh, USA), Hausdorff Center for Mathematics (Bonn, Germany), Rutgers University (USA), Universität Zürich (Zürich, Switzerland) General Rules The PhD programme consists in three/four years of study and research.
