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 the 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 discriminant sets. Other examples include the study of multidimensional difference equations, analytic continuation of functions and sets.... [-]

PhD in Computer Sciences

GSSI - Gran Sasso Science Institute
Campus Full time 4 years November 2018 Italy L'Aquila

The principled development of modern computing systems involves the modeling and management of the interactions between discrete and continuous phenomena, coping with heterogeneous networks efficiently and sustainably, the possibility to access potentially unlimited hardware and software resources, handling of uncertainty, and the need to elaborate in real time massive amounts of data. It is our tenet that meeting these challenges requires one to develop a multidisciplinary knowledge that must be founded on firm modeling and reasoning capabilities. Therefore, the main aim of our Ph.D. studies is to provide students with the opportunity to develop those capabilities and to apply them to research challenges in Computer Science. To this end, we offer our graduate students introductory courses that provide the necessary formal background and specialized courses that introduce students to the newest developments in the areas of Reactive Systems, Software Engineering, and Algorithmic Aspects of Computer and Social Networks. [+]
