Course Information

Perehdyt maisterin tutkinnossasi valitsemaasi erikoistumislinjaan syvällisesti ja harjaannut alasi asiantuntijaksi.

Applied analysis largely focuses on inverse problems (theoretical and computational), having important applications and implementations in interpreting the data obtained from various measurements in science and engineering. Industrial mathematics is an important application area.

Biomathematics focuses on modeling ecological and evolutionary processes by a variety of approaches, most importantly ordinary and partial differential equations, integral equations, stochastic processes, adaptive dynamics, and game theory.

Mathematical analysis has deep traditions in Helsinki. During recent years, the most celebrated results have been obtained in nonlinear potential theory, nonlinear partial differential equations, conformal geometry and quasiregular mappings.

Mathematical logic focuses on set theory, set-theoretic model theory, model theory, finite model theory, dependence and independence logic, second order logic, philosophical logic, as well as the history of logic and foundations and philosophy of mathematics.

Mathematical physics concentrates on mathematical understanding of quantum field theory and statistical mechanics. In those fields, powerful new methods were developed around the concepts of renormalization and universality. These concepts subsequently entered many areas of physics and mathematics, such as the theory of dynamical systems and “chaos”.

A mathematician is a solid expert of the fields of mathematics, who solves problems using the know-how gained during the studies. At the beginning of your studies, you will choose a certain specialisation area to focus on. A Master of Science degree at the Department of Mathematics and Statistics forms a solid foundation for PhD studies.
