MATHEMATICS AND APPLIED MATHEMATICS
As the lecturers are active and internationally recognized researchers, teaching is based on the most recent research. You will study in a welcoming and informal yet research-intensive atmosphere. The degree programmes are flexible and you can match the studies to your academic interests. While writing your Master’s thesis during the final year of your study, you will have an excellent opportunity to participate in current research projects running at the department.
A Master of Science degree at the Department of Mathematics and Statistics forms a solid foundation for PhD studies.
Applied analysis largely focuses on inverse problems (theoretical and computational), having important applications and implementations in interpreting the data obtained from various measurements in science and engineering. Industrial mathematics is an important application area.
Biomathematics focuses on modeling ecological and evolutionary processes by a variety of approaches, most importantly ordinary and partial differential equations, integral equations, stochastic processes, adaptive dynamics, and game theory.
Mathematical analysis has deep traditions in Helsinki. During recent years, the most celebrated results have been obtained in nonlinear potential theory, nonlinear partial differential equations, conformal geometry and quasiregular mappings.
Mathematical logic focuses on set theory, set-theoretic model theory, model theory, finite model theory, dependence and independence logic, second order logic, philosophical logic, as well as the history of logic and foundations and philosophy of mathematics.
Mathematical physics concentrates on mathematical understanding of quantum field theory and statistical mechanics. In those fields, powerful new methods were developed around the concepts of renormalization and universality. These concepts subsequently entered many areas of physics and mathematics, such as the theory of dynamical systems and “chaos”.
The application period for International Master´s Programmes beginning the autumn of 2016 (2016 admissions) opens in early December 2015 and closes on January 27, 2016 at 3:00 pm (GMT +2). For more information on the International Master´s Programmes (IMP), see Studying/How to apply/Master's studies.
The University of Helsinki has only one application and starting period for international students.
APPLICATION FORM AND APPLICATION FEE
The electronic application form will be available during the application period only at Studyinfo.fi. Applicants who have completed their qualification degree outside of EU (European Union), EEA (European Economic Area) and Switzerland will be charged a non-refundable application fee of 100 euro.
