The Master program

The Master program in Mathematics at UFBA, created in 1968, is now the only program in this field in Bahia. It therefore has a regional leading role in the formation of professors for local schools and universities. It is one of the centres of mathematical research in North and North-eastern Brazil with its scientific staff publishing in renowned international journals. A Summer program is organised every year, in the months of January and February. The public targeted by this program ranges from prospective Master students to senior researchers. The Summer activities include courses, several workshops, and conferences of the various research groups. Additionally, at the end of each calendar year a conference bringing together students and researchers from all fields of Mathematics is organised.

The program currently comprises the following research areas:

Algebra

Analysis

Dynamical Systems

Geometry

Logic and Topology

Probability

Statistics
