Mathematics

One must accomplish two things when earning a PhD. First one must understand a particular subject thoroughly. Secondly, one must extensively in knowledge about that subject.

An education in mathematics can provide the foundation for further study or work in technical and scientific fields that highly utilize mathematics. Courses of study in mathematics can range from a minor to a PhD program.

There are more than four thousand higher education organizations in Europe, from leading research institutions to small, teaching-focused universities. Europe itself is not as much different than other continents, reaching from the Arctic Circle to the coast of Africa.

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.... [-]

It is an interdisciplinary study program which connects classical physics (particularly continuum mechanics and thermodynamics) with mathematical analysis and numerical mathematics. The student should go through the construction or understanding of the physical model, its mathematical analysis up to its numerical solution.

Due to the complexity of problems studied both in the research and in the praxis a closed collaboration among specialist from different areas is needed. Typically, the physicists and engineers construct the models and mathematicians study the mathematical properties of the models and solve the models numerically. These specialists often use different languages to describe the same problem. The graduates of this program should be able to communicate with all of them and are therefore prepared to lead such groups. Moreover, they should also be prepared to solve simpler problems by themselves: from the construction of the model through its analysis up to its numerical solution.... [-]
