Master and PhD projects

Bachelor, Master and PhD projects/theses

If you are interested in a topic from functional analysis, mathematical quantum physics, operator algebras or braid groups, then you can write your MSc thesis in our group. Please get in touch in order to arrange a topic and supervision. Also Bachelor projects are available, see for example the suggested topics from the seminar on low-dimensional topology (StudOn link).
