The master’s programme Mathematics focuses on analysis and number theory. From applied to fundamental research, and from algebra to data science, our master’s programme spans these fields entirely.
What does this master’s programme entail?
The two-year programme has two components: an analysis-oriented component with topics such as dynamical systems, differential equations, probability theory and stochastics, percolation and mathematics in the life sciences, and an algebra/geometry-oriented component with topics such as algebraic number theory, algebraic geometry, algebraic topology and cryptology. The goal of each programme is to train the student as an independent researcher, and to develop the necessary skills and proficiency to advance your career.
