The PhD program in Pure and Applied Mathematics from Politecnico di Torino is managed by a Consortium among the Politecnico di Torino, University of Torino and the Istituto Nazionale di Alta Matematica "F. Severi" (INdAM), Rome.
The goal of the PhD program in Pure and Applied Mathematics is to promote, organize, and manage the activities of the graduate students (third level of higher education, according to the Bologna Process) in order to achieve the title of PhD in Mathematics and its applications.The research themes of the program belong to the classes PE1, SH4 and SH6 of the research areas of the European Research Council and cover all areas of pure and applied mathematics: Logics, Algebra, Geometry, Mathematical Analysis and PDE's, Probability, Statistics, Mathematical Physics, Numerical Analysis, Math. education, History of Mathematics, with a broad range of applications, including engineering, architecture, urban planning, medicine and epidemiology, pharmacy, economics.
The PhD program combines disciplinary specialization and a variety of theoretical and methodological approaches.It provides the PhD students with a preparation useful both in the academic research and the applications of mathematics to the private sector (such as bio- and nanotechnology, pharmaceutical companies, management, health organizations, etc.).The PhD program will promote collaborations with international experts and institutions, within a program of international "cotutele".
Beyond Academia and public and private research centers, professional opportunities are:
- employment in banks and insurance companies to carry out actuarial activities;
- private companies to carry out modeling and data analysis (in economics, marketing, epidemiology, ecc...)
- consulting and IT companies;
- statistical and financial consultancy as freelancers;
- teaching, mostly in High Schools.
- Around finite basis results for quasi-orders
- Curvature and topology in riemannian geometry
- Diophantine geometry and applications to the factorization of lacunar polynomials
- Elliptic curves
- From theories in mathematics education to classroom practice: multimodality and visualization
- Geometric control theory and self-propulsion in fluids
- Gino Fano e la scuola italiana di geometria algebrica
- Kernel-based methods and applications
- Large scale numerical optimization. Application to data science
- Mathematical models for biological and biomedical problems
We are not aware of any academic requirements for this programme.
- Access to PhD courses in Italy can be only achieved by participating in the Calls for Application. At Politecnico di Torino, PhD candidates are admitted after the evaluation of academic qualifications and the following oral interview: as a matter of fact, your skills are evaluated by analyzing your academic and scientific curricula and by the mandatory interview with the Selection Committee.
