Programme Overview This programme stands at the crossroads of various disciplines of modern mathematics and computer science, including statistics, optimization, learning theory, information theory, complexity theory, as well as at the intersection of science and innovation in the field of modern information technology. Leading experts at HSE and Skoltech jointly provide instruction in this unique research-driven programme. Students participate in one or more working groups (research seminars), where they determine focus areas for an initial survey report and then solve challenges at the intersection of cutting-edge research and technology in statistical learning theory. These seminars are built on teamwork, as the tasks undertaken are so complex that they can’t be solved by one person alone. Students learn how to effectively collaborate, bringing together their diverse collective skills, competencies, and experiences to determine successful solutions for complicated issues. Programme courses are taught by leading HSE experts, including globally renowned scholars such as Dr. Yurii Nesterov, Dr. Denis Belomestny, Dr. Dmitry Vetrov, Dr. Andrei Sobolevski, Dr. Alexey Naumov, and Dr. Quentin Paris. Lectures are also delivered by Skoltech professors including Dr. Ivan Oseledets, Dr. Viktor Lempitsky, Dr. Evgeny Burnaev, and Dr. Yury Maximov. This team is rather young, but its members have already made significant research achievements. The programme actively cooperates with the Russian Academy of Sciences Institute for Information Transmission Problems, as well as with relevant faculties at Moscow State University and the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology. Graduates go on to work for major Russian and international companies and... [-]

Masters in Mathematics. First Year of Graduated Studies: The first year of Graduate Studies (Diplôme Universitaire), MMEF - Mathematical Methods in Economics and Finance, is a one-year, full-time, international programme that is taught in English. The courses correspond to those taught in the first year of Graduate Studies, which in the Bologna European Academic System is the first year M1 of the Masters. The courses derive from pre-existing courses at the university, with intensive courses in French. The degree is devoted to the training of students in the use of mathematical models in economics and finance: mathematical economics, strategic analysis, decision theory, stochastic models, mathematical finance and optimization models. The training is built around a large spectrum of courses, which aim to give the knowledge for the modelization of economic and financial problems, for mathematical formalization and tools for the numerical solutions. The new models in finance, economics and decision theory need a coherent training in these fields. Around 50 students are welcomed each year. Admission is made on the basis of academic excellence. All applicants must be fluent in written and spoken English and have a recognized Bachelor Degree or equivalent (180 ECTS credits in the Bologna system).

Masters in Mathematics. Mathematics and physics are complementary subjects and make a sensible combination to study at university. There are many examples of unexpected discoveries resulting from interaction between the two disciplines. Ideas developed in particle physics have led to advances in topology - one of the purest branches of mathematics. Advances in the understanding of chaos provide another example. Ideas from the theory are being applied increasingly in the modelling of complex physical systems such as the atmosphere and lasers. The Warwick joint courses (BSc and MMathPhys) are now among the best-established in the country with around 50 students starting each year. The courses include a significant proportion of modules from both contributing departments designed primarily for joint degree students. It is possible at the end of the First Year to transfer to either of the single subject degrees. Years one and two are common to the two courses. Warwick is strong in research in a number of branches of mathematics and physics, and is well-placed to offer accounts of those developments likely to be of most interest to joint degree students. These include non-linear systems (there are modules on the weather, modelling of biological systems, and complexity theory) and theoretical physics. Please download the course booklet for more information. The modules are listed below and more detailed desriptors of their content is given in the links above.

Students from the Master’s programme in Applied and Computational Mathematics will become skilled applied mathematicians, well-prepared for advanced industrial positions or continued graduate studies. The programme contains three tracks: Mathematical Statistics and Financial Mathematics, Computational Mathematics and Optimisation and Systems Theory. Programme outline The programme consists of foundation courses that are mandatory for all students, and once the individual specialisation track is chosen, there are relevant required courses within that area as well. Within the Mathematical Statistics and Financial Mathematics track students are provided with the ability to analyse and model situations where randomness and uncertainty are common and applicable in several areas. The Computational Mathematics track contains courses providing knowledge of design, analysis and application of numerical methods for mathematical modeling, usable in computer simulations catering to both research and prototyping. Finally, the Optimisation and Systems Theory track focuses on the ability to provide optimal solutions within certain restraints, applicable in areas such as economics, operation analysis, biology and robotics, where these dynamic systems are modeled and controlled with assets gained from the systems theory area. Degree project The project may be carried out in an academic or industrial environment in Sweden or abroad. Students are welcome to discuss project ideas with the staff at the mathematics department, but are also encouraged to seek other contacts, in the academic world and in industry, to identify suitable projects. The result of this thesis work is provided as a written report and as a presentation at a seminar. Career prospects Advanced... [-]
