Doctoral School of Mathematics programme offered at Eötvös Loránd University topics covered comprise most of pure mathematics, including also combinatorial optimization, computer science, statistical and mathematical physics, as well as most of applied mathematics including the full spectrum of operations research, numerical analysis and statistics.


Doctoral School of Mathematics programme offered at Eötvös Loránd University aims to introduce students to high level research in mathematics.

The program is research oriented: apart from attending specialized courses, our students usually start their research work by the end of the first year. Thus by the end of the program they already obtain results which are published (or accepted for publication) in internationally renowned journals. At the end of each year the students report about their research progress. At the end of the second year of studies the students must pass a comprehensive examination.


While many of our former students obtain postdoctoral positions throughout the world, a large number of them get tenure or tenure track positions at universities or research institutes. Some of our students will pursue their research career in the non-academic environment of large international research institutions, tied to high-tech development or to the economic or financial world.
