This discipline is included in the programMathematics - master.

Based on an active research program we can offer a Master's degree program in pure mathematics with specializations in differential geometry. Relevant Master's Thesis in differential geometry is focused on mathematical physics, geometrical theory for partial differential equations, dynamic systems, symplectic geometry, almost complex geometry, invariant metrics and geometry of hypersurfaces.

The program structure below indicates that at least three of six courses in the program will be in analysis/differential geometry at 3000-level.

Other relevant elective courses are MAT-3100 Integration Theory, MAT-3112 Contact Geometry and Symplectic Geometry, MAT-3113 Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations, MAT-3114 Algebraic Topology, MAT-3120 Groups and Representations, MAT-3810 Special syllabus and other courses in mathematics, statistics or computer science at the 2000- or 3000-level.
