Objectives and Openings
The "Analysis, Arithmetic and Geometry" (AAG) final specialization delivers pure and specialized courses in each of the three areas mentioned in its title, starting with three fast-track courses in September. Most of the courses and lecturers are changed every two years, enabling a fairly wide range of disciplines to be covered. Students put together their own training program from a varied choice of courses. The main aim is give students the best possible preparation for a PhD in pure mathematics. Courses for this final specialization run by the Université Paris-Sud and the École Polytechnique are delivered on the Orsay-Palaiseau site. This specialization therefore draws on two mathematics departments with proven success in training top-level, pure mathematics PhD students.
