Statistics

The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.

With PhD in Statistics, you can understand complex mathematics that are often difficult to understand especially for students pursuing higher education. Through this study, you will have ideas on how to improve this area of study especially on its applicability.

Best Part time PhDs in Statistics 2017. PhD in Mathematical Modeling Program overview Please Note: This program is currently recruiting its first class, which will begin in fall 2017. Mathematical modeling is the process of developing mathematical descriptions, or models, of real-world systems. These models can be linear or nonlinear, discrete or continuous, deterministic or stochastic, and static or dynamic, and they enable investigating, analyzing, and predicting the behavior of systems in a wide variety of fields. Every mathematical modeling enterprise has four aspects: the content of the application field, the mathematical formulation and analysis, the analytical and computational methods (which often involve high-performance computing), and the interpretation and analysis of the results. 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. In addition, at least 30 credit hours of research, including the Graduate Research Seminar and an interdisciplinary internship outside of RIT, is required.... [-]

Statistical Physics, together with Quantum Mechanics, is the pillar of our understanding of many physical phenomena, from the simplest to the most sophisticated. The field has recently witnessed a significant and impressive outpouring of experimental and theoretical results, which have created an ideal physicist’s playground. Statistical Physics addresses, for instance, crucial questions about the nature of phase transitions and predicts the possibility to forge new states of matter, such as Bose-Einstein condensation in ultra-cold gases. At the same time, it provides a vital source of fresh ideas and inspiration for those who work in more theoretical directions. Its attraction lies in its ability to produce an array of sophisticated analytical and conceptual tools with far-reaching applications. The remarkable blend of mathematical and physical ideas is at the root of the outstanding scientific elegance and extraordinary efficiency characterizing this scientific area. Thanks to an intense activity of postgraduate courses, weekly seminars, colloquia and journal club meetings, the PhD programme aims at providing students with aims at training students to a complete mastery of the scientific methods of Statistical Physics and exposing them to research topics which are currently at the frontier of this field, such as: Quantum Field Theory Exactly Solvable Models Ultra-cold atomic gases Quantum spin chains Physics out of equilibrium and thermalization properties Quantum quench and entanglement AdS/CFT correspondence Conformal Field Theory Stochastic methods Casimir effect Random matrices The most recent placements after PhD at SISSA: Rockfeller Foundation, New York, USA Rutgers University, Rutgers, USA Nordita, Stockholm, Sweden Max...
