Program description

The two-year programme focuses on analysis and number theory, offering specialisations in both themes. The staff participate in leading research projects and offer high-quality teaching.

The Leiden Mathematical Institute aims at excellence both in research and in education. Many well-known Dutch mathematicians work here or have worked here, including analyst Thomas J. Stieltjes, who gave his name to the Stieltjes integral, and number theorist Hendrik D. Kloosterman, who was the inventor of the Kloosterman sum. The influence of both can still be felt today, with the Institute's distinct dual focus on both analysis and number theory. The Institute is partner in the Lorentz Center, an international research centre for Astronomy, Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics and Bio Sciences. In addition, the Institute has intensive contacts with the Center for Mathematics and Computer Science in Amsterdam and with EURANDOM in Eindhoven.

The programme will be tailor-made according to your interests and ambition. As a graduate of this programme you will possess a thorough theoretical basis and will be able to operate on the international market.

The goal of each programme is to train the student as an independent researcher, and to develop the necessary skills and proficiency to advance his/her career. A student who has obtained a Master of Science degree in Mathematics possesses a thorough theoretical basis, knows how to work in a multi-nationality environment, and is able to operate well on the international market.
