Introduction

Advanced training in theoretical and applied mathematics with emphasis on Algebra and Logic (logic, non-standard analysis, algebra, number theory, cryptography), Analysis (differential equations, calculation of variations and optimal control, optimization, dynamical systems, numerical applications) and Statistics (statistics, operational research, probabilities). During the thesis, an in-depth study of a part of mathematics and / or its applications is required in order to overcome the frontier of mathematical knowledge in solving the unsolved problem and / or in initiating a new theory. Ability to formulate new mathematical concepts and / or mathematical modeling in one of several application contexts, in-depth knowledge and assimilation of parts of advanced mathematical theory, to successfully use computerized means, to interpret and transmit mathematical results of scientific texts, to present results of own research, write scientific articles published in prestigious scientific journals.

Professional Careers

Teaching in national or international higher education institutions; scientific research career in national or international centers; senior executives of companies or public institutions in the sphere of Mathematical applications such as: Banks, Insurance, Consultants, Data Analysis, Statistical Analysis.
