aldoraine Posted May 19, 2021 Share Posted May 19, 2021 This is my first post here. Here we go: From: India Applying to: Pure Mathematics PhD Interests: Stochastic analysis and stochastic processes. Undergraduate Institute: Top 3 institute for pure mathematics Undergraduate Major: Pure Mathematics and Theoretical Physics Undergraduate GPA: overall - 9.5/10, math - 9.6/10 GRE General Test: Not taken yet (August 15 test date)GRE Mathematics: Not taken (took a practice test but didn't do well. Preparing hard) Undergraduate relevant coursework with grades: Analysis 1,2 and 3 (10 in all three courses); Algebra 1,2 and 3(9,10 and 8 respectively); Probability theory (10); Calculus(10);Differential Equations(10); Stochastic Processes 1 and 2(10 in both); Complex Analysis(10); Topology(7?); optimisation(10) Projects done in undergraduate: 1. reading project in physics - read Lie groups, contractions etc.. This won't be relevant to my applications. 2. Summer project at top 1 university: In stochastic processes, mixing times, and read a paper by Diaconis. Masters institute: Top1 for probability and statistics I am in first year of my masters. I am forced to take lot statistics courses as they are mandatory. I have taken only Advanced probability, measure theory and 2 analysis courses. I don't have a choice to take extra courses in first year. I have done one reading project in Fourier series and functional analysis. Due to covid, there are no semester breaks between any semesters, professors are also not interested to give a project as most of the interaction is online. By the time I will be applying I would have taken the following courses: Martingale theory, Functional Analysis, Ergodic theory. Last semester I am taking : Brownian motion and diffusions, Markov processes and martingale problems, Advanced functional analysis, Special topics in probability. Do I have any chance for phd in USA? What universities should I aim for ? How can I make my profile stronger ? Thank you in advance Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...

StatsG0d Posted May 27, 2021 Share Posted May 27, 2021 You should check out mathematicsgre.com, as this forum is really biased more towards statistics than math. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
