Founded in 1970, the Graduate Program in Mathematics (PPGMat) from the ICMC is one of the most traditional in Brazil and also one of the most well known programs that educates Master´s and Doctoral students in the country. The excellence of the scientific level of the program was recognized as internationally in the CAPES' last threeyear evaluation, which awarded it the maximum grade, which is 7.
The PPGCCMC aims to prepare its students for careers in teaching and research at universities and companies. The objective of the Master's degree is to provide students with knowledge to perform, with proficiency, undergraduate teaching functions, as well as initiate them professionally in research. In the Doctoral degree program, the purpose is to provide extensive and indepth scientific education to the student, developing scientific research in Mathematics.
The research lines offered by the Program are:
 Algebra
 Algebraic Geometry
 Commutative algebra
 Homological algebra
 Numbers Theory
 Analysis
 Applied Functional Analysis

Functional Differential Equations
 Harmonic Analysis

 Integral Equations

Mathematical physics


Nonlinear Dynamic Systems
 Nonlinear Functional Analysis
 Ordinary Differential Equations
 Partial Differential Equations
 Geometry and Topology
 Algebraic Topology
 Differential Geometry

Differential Topology

 Ergodic Theory
 Geometric Topology
 Mathematical physics
 Singularities
 Topology
Graduates from PPGMat hold prominent positions at universities and national research centers. This impact can be identified regionally as many of them have become faculty members in prestigious universities in Brazil and have created new research centers and graduate programs, which contributes greatly to the expansion of teaching and science.
Admission
Admission of regular students on to the PPGMAT program can be done through a selection process or using the GRE.
Master´s program
The Master´s course is open to candidates holding a Bachelor´s degree in Mathematics and related areas.
 Admission is by a selection process based on:
 Analysis of academic education (undergraduate record) with a weight of 10%:
 Analysis of courses studied in Pure Mathematics (content, workload and bibliography)
 Analysis of the concepts obtained from Pure Mathematics courses
 Curriculum vitae analysis with weight of 10%:
 Undergraduate scientific project in the area of Pure Mathematics
 Academic, research and professional activities
 Participation in scientific events presenting work
 Awards and Distinctions in the area of Pure Mathematics
 Performance with weight 80%:
 The performance will take into account the highest grade obtained by the candidate in the Summer 2018 Program of the ICMC or in the Extramural Test.
 The Summer Program grade will take into account performance in Summer Program courses (Functions of Complex Variables or Advanced Calculus).
If any of the items is not met, the candidate will receive grade zero in the corresponding question.
Candidates who receive a minimum of 60% of the total number of points are considered approved on the program.
Future graduates of this program will be awarded the title of "Master of Mathematics".
Doctoral degree program
The Doctoral degree program is open to candidates holding a Bachelor´s degree and a Master´s degree in Mathematics and related areas.
Admission is by a selection process based on:
 Analysis of academic education (undergraduate record) with a weight of 90%:
 Analysis of the courses studied in Pure Mathematics (content and number of studied hours).
 Analysis of the concepts obtained in the Pure Mathematics courses. The grade in this item will take into account the highest grade obtained by the candidate in the academic education analysis OR in the ExtraMural Doctoral test, which is optional for the candidate.
 Curriculum Vitae Analysis with a weight of 10%
