Mathematics degree offered by the University of Arizona carries on research (and research seminars) in a variety of purely mathematical and interdisciplinary fields. In algebra and number theory, research includes group theory, rings and modules, algebraic number theory, representation theory, and primality testing. 

Research in analysis is being carried out on unbounded operators, quantum field theory, integrable systems, dynamical systems, and nonlinear problems of ecology, chemistry, and fluid dynamics. In geometry, there is work on algebraic geometry, moduli spaces, symplectic geometry, and Lie theory. In probability and statistics, projects involve reliability theory, stochastic processes, statistical inference, and nonparametric inference.

Educational Opportunity

To be admitted, applicants must have completed the equivalent of an undergraduate major in mathematics with at least 15 units of upper-division or higher level work including one semester each of advanced analysis at the level of Math 425A, abstract algebra at the level of Math 415A, and linear algebra at the level of Math 413. Applicants are asked to submit scores on the Graduate Record Examination, including the subject Examination in Mathematics.

Programme Structure

  • Each student must present a coherent collection of courses in which the work outside of Mathematics is related to part of the studies in Mathematics. 
  • There are many such possibilities, including: algebra, and computer science or discrete methods in operations research; probability, and statistics or reliability/quality control; numerical mathematics, and computer science or computational science; mathematical foundations and history, and education; analysis, and physics or optics; etc.
