Graduate programs lead to M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Mathematics.
The current interests concentrate in mainly two areas:
- analysis and its applications (applied functional analysis, differential equations, numerical analysis),
- algebra and number theory and their applications (in particular, modular forms, finite fields, coding theory, and cryptography).
Graduate students may choose to follow the regular track of pure mathematics as well as joint work with other disciplines within the university such as the computer science or economics.
The research within the Mathematics Group at Sabancı University focus on:
- Algebra, Number Theory, and Applications (finite fields, curves over finite fields, algebraic coding theory, pseudorandom number generators, enumerative combinatorics, integer partitions and q-series).
- Analysis (functional and complex analysis, differential equations, probability, and distributions).
Applications for graduate programs are evaluated by the respective Admission Jury along with individual program entries. Admission is finalized by the approval of the related Graduate School Board upon the recommendation of the Jury and announced to the applicants.
