Master's Thesis in Algebra and Geometry
A Master's Thesis is a half year study program where you get research training, and experience in writing and presenting scientific material. Some suggestions of possible problems are listed below. We are however flexible and will most certainly be able to tailor a master's thesis that fits your interest.
In order to get an idea about the actual project you might want to look at the list of previous students that have achieved an Examensarbete within our group. It is not a big secret that many of our students continue doing their Ph.D. in mathematics as well, and here is a list of graduated students. Even though we certainly appreciate you heading for a Ph.D. in mathematics, we also welcome those of you who are interested in doing different careers..
Who are we?
The research group in Algebra and Geometry is a quite big and socially active group. We are all active in research and have sincere interest in teaching and mentoring.
Our research interests include moduli spaces, Hilbert schemes, graded modules, toric geometry, and homotopy theory. We have broad international cooperation and contacts, mainly with universities and mathematicians in Europe, Canada and USA. During the year we have numerous guests. Our personal homepages as well as the research articles will give you a more detailed description of our research profile.
Together with the University of Stockholm we run a weekly seminar, and usually we also run a local seminar. Furthermore, our group of graduate students is usually big enough to run reading seminars and thematic workshops. We are also involved in the activity at the famous Mittag-Leffler Institute, located in Djursholm. The academic year 2006/07, and then also in spring of 2011, the programs at the Mittag-Leffler Institute was directly related to our research activity.
All together these seminars and the people in the group will give you lots of exposure to new and exciting mathematics within the huge and active field that is covered by Algebra and Geometry.
Take contact with any of us for more information. Address and emails are found on the homepage of the group.
