The Doctoral Program in Mathematics presents advanced training in Theoretical and Applied Mathematics, with an emphasis on Algebra and Logic (Number Theory and Cryptography), in Mathematical Analysis (Differential Equations, Calculus of Variations and Optimal Control, Dynamical Systems and Numerical Applications) and in Statistics (Statistics, Operational Research and Probabilities).

In the dissertation, an in-depth study of a part of Mathematics and/or its applications is required in order to overcome the frontiers of mathematical knowledge when solving open problems and/or starting a new theory.

It is intended that doctoral students develop skills and techniques such as: formulating innovative mathematical theorems and concepts, mathematically modelling phenomena in various application contexts, acquiring in-depth and advanced knowledge of Mathematics, using Mathematical software, interpreting and transmitting mathematical results of scientific texts, communicating results of their own research and write scientific articles that can be published in prestigious specialist journals.
