Mathematical Analysis and Modelling

Start: September 1, 2023

Degree: Master 

Duration: 2 years

ECTS: 120

Language: English

Application deadline: August 15, 2023



This program will provide students with advanced knowledge and skills in mathematical analysis, numerical methods, probability theory, mathematical statistics, and computer technology. Additionally, they will be taught how to apply the acquired knowledge in industrial and research contexts. The present program is implemented jointly with Rouen University, France.


More details about the program can be found at:


Upon successful completion of the program, students are awarded the degree as follows:

► Master of Science (MSc) in «Mathematics»

► Master of Mathematics in «Mathematics. Computer sciences» (Russia) 



The program is carried out as follows:


1st and 2nd semesters are taught at National Research Tomsk State University in the subject area: Mathematics. Computer Sciences. It includes general vocational and specialty-oriented disciplines (such as industrial mathematics, optimization methods, supercomputer technologies, etc.) along with the in-depth study of English.


3d and 4th semesters are taught according to the schedule of the partner university in France, in the subject area: Fundamental and Applied Mathematics; included are specialty-oriented disciplines, foreign languages, and internships.


During the 2d year of study, students will be working on their master theses—with their subsequent defense—in parallel with studying. The preparation and defense of master theses and graduation exams take place at one of the partner universities (Tomsk State University, Rouen University). Educational activities are carried out according to an individual plan of a master student set up with participation of a research adviser.


Mode of study: full-time.


Significant part of the period of study is dedicated to learning English and—on a selective basis—Russian and French.

Mathematical education in Siberia began in 1917, when Tomsk State University established the Faculty of Physics and Mathematics, one of the four faculties listed in the Russian Charter of Imperial universities (1884). It has contributed greatly to the development of mathematical studies and mathematical education in Siberia. For a long time, it had been the only faculty to the East of the Urals training professionals for mathematical departments of universities and research institutes.

At present, the faculty staff includes 75 lecturers, 57 of them holding doctoral degrees; 16 Advanced Doctors of Sciences, 41 PhD holders, 1 corresponding member of the Russian Academy of Education; 2 Honored Scientists of the Russian Federation; 32 Honored Teachers of the Russian Federation; 2 academicians of the International Academy of Ecology and Human and Nature Safety; 1 corresponding member of the International Academy of Informatization. 


Leading Research Groups and Scholars


Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics runs two specialized Doctoral Thesis Defense Committees:

  • to supplicate for the degrees of Candidate (PhD) or Advanced Doctor of Physics and Mathematics. Fields of specialization: Mathematical Logics; Algebra; Theory of Numbers (Chairperson: professor I.A. Aleksandrov)

  • to supplicate for the degrees of Candidate (PhD) or Advanced Doctor of Physics and Mathematics. Fields of specialization: Fluid, Gas, and Plasma Mechanics; Mechanics of Deformable Solid Bodies; Thermophysics and Heat Engineering (Chairperson: professor A.M. Grishin)

Professor A.M. Grishin leads the research in the conjugated problems of multiphase reaction media, informatics, and ecology in the following areas:

  • Multiphase reaction media and physical and mathematical modeling of certain industrial and natural disasters, including wildfires (forest, steppe, and peat fires) and their ecological impact, with application of innovative computational and information technologies to three-dimensional problems of mathematical physics.

  • Theoretical and experimental studies of aerodynamic characteristics and characteristics of non-stationary conjugate heat transfer with allowance for thermochemical destruction of a body and injection of a gas into the boundary layer to develop new thermal control techniques for bodies in axially symmetric or three-dimensional supersonic flow of gas.  

  • Satellite sounding of the atmosphere—Earth’s surface system and forest fire detection.  

As of now, the FMM has five computer labs and about 100 state-of-the-art computers. All computers are engaged in academic and research processes and are connected into a single network. The potential of supercomputer SKIF Cyberia (performance 62 TFLOPs) and various training, controlling and, testing software are largely incorporated in the FMM academic activity.
