1. The Ph.D. program in Mathematics at the University Roma Tre started 16 years ago in 2000. We had 15 starting classes (in Italy we call a class a cycle) involving altogether about 80 students. At the present time 13 cycles have been completed and we graduated 50 Ph.D. students. About 70% of our Ph.D. graduates have, at the moment, a research position in research institutes or universities in Italy or abroad (about 50% abroad)
2. The Roma Tre Ph. D. program in Mathematics aims at training students towards a research activity in pure or applied Mathematics at high international standards. Therefore, a Ph.D. graduate in Mathematics from Roma Tre is in a very good position to find high level employments in either the academic world (Universities and research center either domestic or foreign) or companies of the private sector carrying out advanced research projects.
3. Main Research Fields: 3.1 Commutative and non-commutative Algebra: Rings of Kronecker functions, Nagata rings, multiplicative system of ideals in commutative rings, Gabriel Popescu localizing system and associated (semi)star operations; representation theory, infinite-dimensional Lie algebras, conformal and vertex algebras. 3.2 Logic: mathematical logic, proof theory, computational content of mathematical proofs, linear logic. 3.3 Algebraic geometry and differential geometry: moduli spaces of curves and algebraic varieties, deformations theory, higher dimensional algebraic varieties, classification of algebraic varieties.

4. Organization of the Ph.D. program: During the first and a half year, Ph.D. students are asked to attend four Ph.D. courses. The courses can be chosen not only in the Department of Mathematics and Physics of Roma Tre but also in the other universities of Rome, or even in other universities upon approval of the Director of graduate studies. The students are also encouraged to follow joint activities co-organized by the three universities of Rome (Roma Tre, La Sapienza and Tor Vergata Universities). After the second year, students have to choose an advisor (which can be freely chosen among the faculties of the three universities of Rome) and are expected to finish the program within the third year. Participation to schools , workshops and conferences are encouraged (starting from the second year) and partly financed.
