I got the first acquaintance with the program during the ITMP MSU annual Winter school in 2023 — the program was told to include wide range of disciplines in mathematics and mathematical physics. A study of the curriculum
led me to the conclusion that this program suits me. As a bachelor’s in physics, I was interested in more than just pure maths, and was exhilarated to find a master’s program, which includes both advanced mathematical disciplines and modern theoretical physics. Moreover, I expected to join a group of highly motivated people, which is a big deal in the scientific community.
