The Master Degree in Mathematics aims to form scientists and professionals having a deep knowledge of the theoretical principles that are the base of mathematical sciences. Secondly, a variety of study plans regarding various applications of mathematics are offered. The course is divided into four curricula:
- Advanced Mathematics is generally for students who want to continue their studies at doctorate level, as it includes a large spectrum of areas of Mathematics. It proposes three particular study plans (called orientamenti):
- General Advanced Mathematics;
- Advanced Algebra and Geometry;
- Calculus of Variations, Partial Differential Equations and Dynamical Systems.
- The curriculum on Teaching and Scientific Communication prepares students, on one side, for school teaching and, on the other, to work in the field of the Scientific dissemination which is more and more important because of science museums and shows.
- Mathematics and Statistics for Life and Social Science offers two distinct study plans:
- Modelling, Statistics and Analysis of Bio-systems: studies the models used to investigate various complex biological systems. Among others, models of epidemic spread are studied.
- Modelling and Simulation for Biomedical Applications: yields competences in mathematics, numerical computation, physics, physiology, applicable to a range of disciplines in medicine, the pharmaceutical industry, sanitary services.
- Cryptography introduces the theoretical and practical aspects of modern cryptography and Error Correction Codes. It shows, how important methods adopted in mobile phones, smart cards, browsers or decoders are constructed starting from very refined algebraic and geometric theoretical instruments. It proposes two particular study plans: stage-oriented and research-oriented.
