The doctorate program in Mathematics and Models of the University of L’Aquila offers a graduate school
in the most relevant areas of mathematics.
The program is open to national and international students.
The doctorate council is made up of 25 Professors of the University
of L’Aquila.
The coordinator is Prof.
Davide Gabrielli, the vice-coordinator is Prof. Debora Amadori.

- Objectives of the program:
The programs aims at training students to getting a deep knowledge of
the theoretical features of a mathematical subject and to developing a
qualified preparation to apply mathematical models in a diversified
range of scientific areas.
- Research topics:
- Algebra: (theory of groups and of the representations, commutative algebra and applications)
- Geometry (Riemannian, complex and algebraic)
- Partial differential equations with applications
- Continuum mechanics
- Dynamical systems (deterministic and stochastic)
- Stochastic processes with applications to biology, physics and finance
- Numerical analysis of dynamical systems and numerical methods for partial differential equations
- Atomistic modelling and simulations of Molecules, Materials, and Biological Systems
- Development of Scientific Software for High-Performance Computing
The doctorate is one of the programmes of the INdAM-DP-COFUND-2015.
- Educational program:
We offer a variety of research related courses as well as introductory
level courses which help first-year students strengthen their
mathematical background.
At the beginning of every academic year, in consultation with their
tutor, students present a study plan to the doctorate council where they
specify what research and training they plan to do in the coming
academic year. In the three years of the program, students are expected
to participate in seminars offered by the school and to take part in
research internships in institutions both in and outside Italy.
At the end of each academic year, with the exception of the final year,
the students will then be interviewed on the studies and research they
have carried out during the year in front of a committee appointed by
the doctorate council. Successfully passing this interview means that
the students can keep their post and fellowship, and thus be admitted to
the following year. At the interview, the students will present a
report on their scholarly activity, their research and its results,
seminars, congresses, or other scientific activities they have
participated in, and any publications they have produced. For the
admission into the final year, this report will include a section
relating to the progress made in their research project.
The program is in strict collaboration with the international
Ph.D. school Gran Sasso Science Institute (GSSI, L'Aquila)
and the students will have the possibility to follow all
the activities held at the GSSI.
Our graduate students also benefit from our close links with The International Research Center of Mathematics and Mechanics of Complex Systems.
- Laboratories and
Databases:
The students have access to a wide variety of computing equipment in
the DISIM department.
They have access to various scientific laboratories among which we
mention the Hight Performance Parallel Computing (HPPC) with the
supercalculator Caliban, with a computing power
of about 2.5 teraflops.
They also have access to databases as ARXIV, ALL, EBSCO, DOAJ, virtual
Emeroteca Caspur, JCR, JSTOR, AMS/Mathschinet, Numdam, PUBMET, Science
Direct, Scopus, Springer Link, WILEY on line library, ISI, WOS.
