Master programme Computer Mathematics

Contents and focus of the degree programme:

The master's programme in Computer Mathematics combines basic mathematical skills with the application possibilities of computer-based computing. Symbolic arithmetic deals with the development of algorithms that do not only deal with numbers but also with more general mathematical objects by means of a computer. The course imparts the necessary basic mathematical skills at many different levels of symbolic arithmetics, such as computer algebra and logics. In addition, basic knowledge in software design is taught, which allows a modern implementation of the methods in the form of software systems.

Definition of the field of studies

The Computer Mathematics course deals with the computer-based resolution of mathematical problems and the conversion of mathematical objects by means of algorithms into forms that can be processed by computers.


The master's programme in Computer Mathematics consists of compulsory and elective subjects. From the subject area of "Algorithmic Mathematics" students have to complete the compulsory subjects "Commutative Algebra and Algebraic Geometry", "Stochastic Simulation", and "Algorithmic Combinatorics". The subject area of "Software Technology" comprises the compulsory subjects "Practical Software Technology" and "Formal Methods in Software Development". From the area of "Mathematical Logic" students have to complete the course "Mathematical Logic 1". Moreover, students have to choose electives from the electives offered in the bachelor's programme in Technical Mathematics and also attend unrestricted electives. At the end of the programme students have to write a master's thesis and pass a master's examination.
