Master's degree program “Complex Analysis”

Mathematical amoebaThe aim

The program aims to introduce students to the concepts and methods of complex analysis in several variables, an active area of mathematics that has deep connections with algebraic geometry, mathematical physics, and others. The fundamentals of complex analysis are developed through the systematic study of geometry of complex space and multidimensional integral representations which, in combination with methods of algebraic and tropical geometry, present a powerful tool of contemporary mathematical research in different areas: from PDE and difference equations to algebraic and hypergeometric functions.


  • To give students an appreciations of complex analysis and how this subject fits into mathematics.
  • To ensure students know the fundamentals of complex analysis in several variables.
  • To provide students with the opportunity to develop academic and research skills.
  • To make students familiar with the connections complex analysis has with other fields of mathematics and physics.
  • To enable students to experience of conducting guided research.

Learning outcomes

On completion of this program, it is expected that students will be able to:

  • recall complex analysis terminology, basic definitions and statements;
  • recognize the problems the complex analytic methods may be used to solve;
  • identify the knowledge required for solving a problem;
  • select and employ appropriate methods for analyzing problems in complex analysis;
  • prove rigorously mathematical statements and formulate precise mathematical arguments.

Diploma and degree: MSc in Mathematics

The City of Krasnoyarsk

Krasnoyarsk is the administrative capital of Krasnoyarsky kray – second largest region of Russia. It is a big industrial and educational centre with a population of more than 1 million people, and also an important junction of the Trans-Siberian Railway.

The city is located on the banks of the Yenisey River in the valley formed by the Eastern Sayan Mountains. Nature reserve Stolby ("pillars") has become the city’s visiting card.

Among the famous people born in Krasnoyarsk are artist Vasily Surikov, opera singer Dmitri Hvorostovsky, biathlete Evgeny Ustyugov, skeletonist Alexander Tretyakov and ice-hockey player Alexander Semin.

In 2019 Krasnoyarsk will proudly host the XXIX Winter Universiade.
