Through extensive research, graduates of this program will have the expertise not only to use the tools of mathematical modeling in various application settings, but also to contribute in creative and innovative ways to solve complex interdisciplinary problems and to communicate effectively with domain experts in various fields. Plan of study The degree requires at least 60 credit hours of course work and research. The curriculum consists of three required graduate common courses, three required graduate concentration courses, a course in scientific computing and high-performance computing (HPC), elective courses focused on the student’s chosen research concentration, and a doctoral dissertation. At least 30 credit hours of course work, including the common curriculum, is required.

PhDs in Mathematics. 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.
