Ph.D. in Mathematics

We admitted our first students to the Ph.D. in Mathematics in 2014 and currently have twelve registered Ph.D. scholars. They are carrying out research in diverse fields such as graph theory, complex networks, algebraic number theory, Lie algebras, harmonic analysis, matrix analysis, disease modeling and machine learning. This reflects the research interests of our faculty, which cover wide areas of pure and applied mathematics.

Admissions for 2020 are open. See the links above and in the menu on the right. You can also view Sample Questions for our admission test.
