Sabancı University has graduate programs leading to M.Sc and Ph.D degrees in Mathematics and a Minor Honors Program in Mathematics aimed at students of engineering and economics programs. The research within the Mathematics Group at Sabancı University focus on:
Algebra, Number Theory and Applications (finite fields, curves over finite fields, algebraic coding theory, pseudorandom number generators, enumerative combinatorics, integer partitions and q-series).
Analysis (functional and complex analysis, differential equations, probability and distributions)
The theory of finite fields has a long tradition in mathematics. Originating from problems in number theory (Euler, Gauss), the theory was first developed purely out of mathematical curiosity. For a long time, this theory was used exclusively in pure mathematics, in areas such as number theory, algebraic geometry, group theory, and so on, without any relevance to applications.
The research interests of the Analysis Group lie mainly in Functional Analysis and Complex Analysis with emphasis on the structure theory of locally convex spaces; in particular, spaces of analytic, harmonic, and infinitely differentiable functions of several variables.
The following areas are of particular interest: linear topological invariants, isomorphisms and bases in locally convex spaces; complex potential theory, approximation and interpolation of analytic and harmonic functions, composition operators on analytic function spaces; probability measures in infinite dimensional spaces, nonlinear theory of distributions; as well as operator theory, pseudo-differential operators and partial differential equations.
