The Faculty of Mathematics was established in 2007, and since then it has become the most successful place in Russia for attracting researchers and students in Mathematics. We offer undergraduate, Masters and PhD programmes in Mathematics. The Faculty actively collaborates with Steklov Mathematical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Kharkevich Institute for Information Transmission Problems and Lebedev Physical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences in Russia and numerous universities abroad.
Math in Moscow, a joint programme run by the Independent University of Moscow, the Moscow Centre for Continuous Mathematical Education and the Higher School of Economics, is accepting applications for the spring 2016 semester until September 30. The Math in Moscow programme for international students has been giving young mathematicians from different countries the opportunity to learn from the best Russian teachers. All programme courses are taught in English.
Pavel Solomatin is one of the first wave of graduates from the HSE Faculty of Mathematics. He successfully graduated from the undergraduate and master’s programmes, and then enrolled in the Leiden University doctoral programme, where he is currently studying number theory under the academic supervision of Bart de Smit.
In 2015 eight graduates from the HSE Faculty of Mathematics started PhD programmes at MIT, McGill, Caltech, Pennsylvania State University and other top universities. HSE 4th year student Dmitry Pirozhkov who has got a place at Columbia University talked to the HSE News Service about how to get onto a prestigious PhD programme and about his expectations and academic plans.
The Faculty of Mathematics congratulates its students who have been recently admitted to PhD programs:
Alexander Berdnikov, Sveta Makarova and Dmitry Kubrak — to MIT
Broderick Causley — to McGill University
Vadim Martynov — to Caltech
Alexey Pakharev — to Northeastern University
Dmitry Pedchenko — to Pennsylvania State University
Dmitry Pirozhkov — to Columbia University
Ivan Telpukhovsky — to Toronto University
Kirill Elson — to ETH Zürich
Columbus University Professor Andrey Okunkov is the Academic Supervisor of HSE’sInternational Laboratory of Representation Theory and Mathematical Physics. In an interview with Afisha, he discusses how mathematics education differs in Russia and the U.S., where his insight comes from, and whether it is true that mathematicians are in fact ‘strange individuals.’
National Research University Higher School of Economics invites applications for PhD positions in Mathematics.
Applicants should hold a degree of Master of Science in Mathematics or equivalent. Application deadline: May 15, 2015
Alexandra Skripchenko, student of the Faculty of Mathematics, received Metchnikov Scholarship from the Embassy of France in Moscow. Congratulations!
In the whole history of mathematics just 8 winners of the highest award - the Field Prize - have come from Russia. One of them is Andrey Okunkov, Academic Supervisor at the International Laboratory of Representation Theory and Mathematical Physics HSE. On Hamburg Reckoning, a weekly programme which broadcasts interviews with major academics on current Russian issues on the OTR TV channel, he talked about his journey from economics to mathematics, about the Faculty of Mathematics at HSE and what makes mathematicians happy.
