Our advantages

  • The programme provides an excellent education which the St Petersburg mathematical school is so famous for. The Department of Higher Mathematics and Mathematical Physics, which implements the programme, is a part of this school.
  • The programme has a wide range of research areas. It covers mathematical problems of quantum field theory, the theory of diffraction and wave propagation, the mathematical theory of scattering, classical and quantum inverse problems, nonlinear integrable systems, the asymptotic theory of waveguides, probabilistic methods in mathematical physics and, of course, the spectral theory of operators that makes St Petersburg mathematical school famous.
  • Graduates of the programme acquire the top qualification in several areas of mathematics at once. This makes it possible for them not only to work successfully in science, but also to use the whole set of mathematical tools in many applied problems. Graduates often find work in a variety of non-academic institutions.
