Purpose of the PhD Course
The aim of the PhD Course in Mathematical Analysis, Modelling, and Applications is to educate graduate students in the fields of mathematical analysis and mathematical modelling, and in the applications of mathematical and numerical analysis to science and technology. The goal is to enable PhDs to work as high level researchers in these fields in universities, research institutes, and private companies.
This PhD Course continues in a unified way the PhD Courses in Mathematical Analysis and in Applied Mathemathics, active until the academic year 20122013.
Research Topics
The activity in mathematical analysis is mainly focused on Dynamical Systems and PDEs, on the Calculus of Variations, on Hyperbolic Conservation Laws and Transport Problems, on Geometric Analysis and on Geometry and Control theory. Connections of these topics with differential geometry and reduced order modeling are also developed.
The activity in mathematical modelling is oriented to subjects for which the main technical tools come from mathematical analysis. The present themes are multiscale analysis, mechanics of materials, micromagnetics, modelling of biological systems, computational fluid and solid dynamics and problems related to control theory.
The applications of mathematics developed in this course are related to the numerical analysis of partial differential equations and of control problems. This activity is developed in collaboration with MathLab for the study of problems coming from the real world, from industrial and medical applications, and from complex systems.
Admission to PhD Program
Students are selected yearly by means of an entrance examination held in Trieste; there are two admission sessions: on 2728 March 2019 and on 1011 September 2019. The latter will be activated only if there should still be places available after the former.Entrance examination is based on:
 Evaluation of curriculum vitae
 Written test (first day of exams)
 Oral interview (second day of exams)
NonEU students can also be admitted through a preselection based on academic qualifications only.
Funds are available to cover travel and lodging expenses: to apply for such funds write at phd@sissa.it and submit your CV. The admission process starts by registering at the page http://www.sissa.it/applications/phd/ and filling out the requested form.Important Dates
