The Master's Thesis is prepared individually and independently by the graduate student and constitutes an in-depth study and treatment of a possibly non-original topic that is on the frontier of the research of a specific scientific field of the science of Mathematics. This study is conducted under the supervision of the supervising professor and is based on existing literature/research. The postgraduate student utilizes the knowledge and skills acquired during the studies in order to process the subject in a synthetic and rigorous way.

The goal of the Master's Thesis is for the graduate student, under the supervision of the supervising professor, to develop critical, synthetic thinking and in-depth analysis skills of the subject in a scientific manner and with due mathematical rigor.

After successful completion of the Master's Thesis, the student should be able to:

  • To develop critical and synthetic thinking.
  • To search for topics and make use of the available literature.
  • Design a work plan and develop methods of approach and development of the subject.
  • To substantiate claims in a scientific and rigorous manner as befits Mathematical science.
  • To successfully write a scientific essay.
  • To successfully present a specific topic.
General Competences

Work autonomously, develop critical thinking skills.
