- Geometric Integration
- The Ising Model
- Number Theory
- Knot Theory
- Lie Algebras
- Probabilistic Algorithmics
- Parallel Algorithms
- Data Mining
- Artificial Intelligence
- Multimedia Security, etc.
Dissertation (36 credits)
LEVEL OF FRENCH REQUIRED BY UNIGE
No French proficiency test required for non-Francophones. A good knowledge of French and English is nevertheless recommended.
