1. The Ph.D. program in Mathematics at the University Roma Tre started 21 years ago in 2000. We had 20 starting classes (in Italy we call a class a "cycle") involving altogether about 107 students. At the present time 18 cycles have been completed and we graduated 75 Ph.D. students. About 68% of our Ph.D. graduates have, at the moment, a research position in research institutes or universities in Italy or abroad (about 65% 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:
Commutative and non-commutative Algebra, Logic, Algebraic geometry and differential geometry, Analytic number theory, Mathematical Analysis and Dynamical Systems, Probability, Mathematical Physics, Numerical Analysis, Applied Mathematics and Scientific Computing, Theoretical Computer Science. The research of the members of the Department can be seen in more detail at the webpage
4. Organization of the Ph.D. program:
during the first 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). At the end the first 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 and financed.
