The course is activated by the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia in agreement with the University of Parma and with the University of Ferrara. For the XXXII cycle, the administrative office is the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia. Students will be placed in the research groups of the partner universities according to the seat of the supervisor (tutor) that will be assigned by the Faculty Board.
Due to the substantial number of about 60 Board members with an international scientific profile, the PhD Program offers an high-quality training in all areas of Mathematics. The activities include lectures (especially during the first year), seminars, workshops and research periods in partner institutions. With regard to the specific training objectives pursued, the PhD program in Mathematics aims particularly to the training of highly qualified researchers, able to carry out high-profile research. The PhD candidate will choose with his supervisor a research topic and will write a dissertation thesis containing original elements. Ph.D. recipients will be ready to work in universities, research institutes, industry, public administration as well as in independent commercial enterprises.
The main areas of interest of the PhD programme include, but are not limited to:
• Group actions, Hopf Algebras and Quantum Groups
• Algebraic Geometry
• Projective Geometry
• Geometry and Complex Analysis
• Discrete mathematics and Combinatorial geometry
• Geometric and algebraic topology of manifolds
• History of Mathematics
• Partial Differential Equations
• Calculus of Variations and applications to Variational problems
• Analytic Number Theory
• Probability Theory
• Stochastic processes
• Statistical Mechanics
• Kinetic Theory - Gas dynamics
• Mathematical models and method for complex systems
• Mathematical Methods of Quantum Mechanics
• Mathematical models in Biology
• Modelling and Scientific Computing
• Numerical Optimization and Applications
• Numerical methods for Integral Equations
