You are free to select the research topic of your choice to enable you to take full advantage of the Graduate School’s resources.
We welcome young people who can speak their minds, not young people who can only do what they are told.
Ramsey, who is known for his graph theory, began his career researching foundational theory, while Minsky, a pioneer of computer science, graduated from the mathematics department at Princeton University.
Even if you do not excel to these levels, you will need to think “outside the box” to engage in mathematics research.
The Graduate School does not limit the scope of student research at the outset.
Rather, we encourage you to explore resources on mathematical thinking.
To enroll in the Graduate School of Mathematics, all you really need is a love of mathematics.
