Doctorate Degrees in Computer Science in Europe 2018. Research in multidimensional complex analysis at Siberian Federal University is about several topics. The overarching theme is the interaction between complex analysis and other areas of mathematics and physics. For example, methods and techniques of functional analysis are applied to the study of PDEs in domains of complex space. Algebraic geometry plays an important role in the study of distribution of complex algebraic and analytic sets and its applications in physics. Alternatively, analytic methods are used in the theory of algebraic and hypergeometric functions, in the description of the structure of discriminantal sets. Other examples include the study of multidimensional difference equations, analytic continuation of functions and sets. Programme Leader Professor Tsikh worked at the universities of Stockholm, Bordeaux, Berlin, Calabria (Italy), Armidel (Australia), Max Planck Institute in Bonn, Institut Mittag-Leffler in Stockholm. Research interests: complex analysis, algebraic geometry, tropical geometry, signal processing, math- ematical physics (superstring theory, thermodynamics) Entry requirements: Master’s degree (or equivalent) in Mathematics, Physics, or Computer Science; desired qualifications: good knowledge of mathematical analysis; an adequate level of English proficiency (certificate or other document) Apply to The Centre for International Education and Certified Testing for a certificate if you do not have it, the Russian language preparatory course is available.
