PG MAT

 

Founded in 1970, the Graduate Program in Mathematics (PPG-Mat) 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 three-year evaluation, which awarded it the maximum grade, which is 7.

The PPG-CCMC 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 in-depth 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
    •  

      Impulsive Differential Equations
    • Integral Equations
    • Mathematical physics

    •  

      Non-Absolute Integrals
    • Nonlinear Dynamic Systems

    • Nonlinear Functional Analysis
    • Ordinary Differential Equations
    • Partial Differential Equations
  • Geometry and Topology
    • Algebraic Topology
    • Differential Geometry
    • Differential Topology

    •  

      Dynamical Systems
    • Ergodic Theory
    • Geometric Topology
    • Mathematical physics
    • Singularities
    • Topology

Graduates from PPG-Mat 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 PPG-MAT 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 Extra-Mural Doctoral test, which is optional for the candidate.
  • Curriculum Vitae Analysis with a 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

If any of the items is not met, the candidate will receive grade zero in the corresponding question.

Candidates who receive a minimum of 80% of the total number of points are considered approved on the program.

Future graduates of this program will be awarded the title of "Doctor of Philosophy in Science - Mathematics".

 

Direct Doctorate

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 and performance (undergraduate and graduate record) with a weight of 80%;
  • Analysis of the courses studied in Pure Mathematics (content and number of studied hours).
  • Analysis of the concepts obtained in the Pure Mathematics courses.
  • Performance in the Extramural Doctoral Degree (the student´s final test score will be considered before enrolling in the Selection Process).
  • Curriculum analysis with a weight of 20%
  • 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.

If any of the items is not met, the candidate will receive grade zero in the corresponding question.

Candidates who receive a minimum of 80% of the total number of points are considered approved on the program.

Future graduates of this program will be awarded the title of "Doctor of Philosophy in Science - Mathematics". 

The selection process is coordinated by the Program Coordinating Committee (CCP-Mat) supported by the research groups linked to the Program's research lines and by the PPG-MATHEMATICS Scholarship Committee, formed by 3 (three) program supervisors and 1 (one) student representative. The public notice and information on registration and enrolment are posted on this website.
