Course Summary

This course aims to train you to conduct research of a high academic standard and to make original contributions to the subject. The programme involves coursework (where suitable) and research training, but its major component is the preparation of a substantial research thesis. The thesis should demonstrate a sound understanding of the main issues in the area and add to existing knowledge.

Research interests in mathematics and statistics include: mathematical finance, in particular the analysis of risk and numerical computation; mathematical physics and partial differential equations; approximation theory and numerical analysis; probability and stochastic processes, pure and applied; applied statistics and multivariate analysis; covariance modelling for repeated measures and longitudinal data; medical statistics; combinatorics, algebra and designs.

As a research student in the Department of Economics, Mathematics and Statistics, you will have access to a wide range of study resources, including the University of London seminar programme in probability and statistics, excellent library facilities close by in Bloomsbury and the taught courses and project component of our MSc Applied Statistics programmes. At Birkbeck, you are initially registered on an MPhil and you upgrade to a PhD after satisfactory progress in the first year or two.
