This course provides flexibility in honours and postgraduate programs to cater for the widely varying interests and chosen specialisations of students. Mathematicians need to be proficient in a wide range of mathematical concepts and techniques. Many of these are either only touched on or omitted from undergraduate programs. An opportunity to broaden the students' knowledge-base with more advanced concepts and techniques is provided in this course.
This course provides the opportunity for a student to pursue an area of study that will complement the other studies in the student's program. Typically, the course will consist of specialised investigations extending knowledge and skills in one of the areas listed in the Topics section below, or another Topic where appropriate and where a supervisor is available.
