Welcome to CAS!

The mission of the Center for Advanced Studies at Skoltech will be to develop the tradition of worldwide excellence of Soviet and Russian mathematics and theoretical physics schools, and foster new generation of scientists by integrating education and research, and creating an innovative model of education, which will allow to include Russian and international leading scientists into educational process.

The Center actively collaborates with the Department of Mathematics of the National Research University Higher School of Economics, Steklov Mathematical Institute, Kharkevich Institute for Information Transmission Problems and Lebedev Physical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences in Russia and universities abroad.

Over the last few decades development of modern physics has required wide range of cutting-edge mathematical domains including topology, algebraic geometry, representation theory, symplectic geometry, category theory, integrable systems. Nowadays Mathematical Physics is a melting pot where new methods and ideas beneficial for both mathematics and physics are created.

The master’s program “Mathematical Physics” is aimed at training researchers in mathematics, having in-depth knowledge of modern mathematical physics, and researches with a detailed understanding of the fundamental models of modern theoretical physics and advanced mathematical training.
