Theses

The bachelor's thesis (BAT) is the last major examination of your bachelor's program. The purpose of this written work is to show your ability in scientifically addressing a (mathematical) problem within a certain period of time (from eight to ten weeks, depending on the program and type of examination). No additional scientific knowledge is expected from you, it is sufficient to implement a scientific approach.

You should at least start your BAT ten weeks before the end of your 8th semester, so that you can still use the full remaining time to complete the work before the beginning of your 9th semester (with the beginning of the 9th semester, your Bachelor degree program is considered delayed for the first time!).

You should personally contact a lecturer in mathematics and decide on a topic according to your mathematical interests (see overview of the research groups of the Institute of Mathematics). You can suggest your own topic. Possible supervisors are any lecturers of mathematics. For students of Financial Mathematics, there are additionally all lecturers of the faculty of economics and of the institute for Computer Science. Students of Mathematical Physics can also contact some lecturers of Physics.

If you have found a supervisor and a topic for your BAT, please print out the form to register for the bachelor thesis, fill it out together with your supervisor and hand it over to Ms.Schmid (Mathematik Ost, Zi. 00.016). This will make the topic of your BAT and the date of submission (date of issue assignment + processing time) official.

Only in well justified cases (incapacity for examination, with certificate!) The processing time can be extended upon application to the examination board and in consultation with the supervisor.

The BAT is in duplicate (bound) and on electronic storage medium "in a common format and in readable form" (quote ASPO, pdf file on a data CD is a viable option) timely in the Examination Office at Ms. Feineis (or representation , Room 01.110) or with Ms. Beuerlein (for business mathematics, room 01.102) in the building Oswald-Külpe-Weg 84/1. There, the adherence to the processing time is documented and your work is passed on to the specified reviewers.

The master's thesis is the last major exam of your master's program. This written work is designed to show that you are capable to work on a (mathematical) problem within a certain period of time (usually six months).

You should start your Master's thesis at least before the beginning of your 6th semester, so that you can still use the full processing time to complete the work before the beginning of your 7th semester (with the beginning of the 7th semester, your Master's program is considered to be delayed!).

The topic of a master's thesis is usually related to a followed seminar or a working group. According to your mathematical interests (see overview of the research groups of the Institute of Mathematics), you should personally contact a lecturer in mathematics and decide on a topic (your own suggestions are possible!). Possible supervisors are all lecturers of mathematics. Additionally, students of Financial Mathematics can contact all lecturers of the Faculty of Economics and of the institute for Computer Science. Students of mathematical physics can also contact all lecturers of Physics.

If you have found a supervisor and a topic for your Master's thesis, please print out the form to register for the Master's thesis, fill it out together with your supervisor and give it to Ms. Schmid (Mathematik Ost, Zi. 00.016). This will make the topic of your Master's thesis and the date of submission (date of issue of the topic + six months) official and binding.

Only in well justified cases (incapacity for examination, with certificate!) The processing time can be extended upon application to the examination board and in consultation with the supervisor.

The BAT should be written in triplicate as well as it should be saved on an electronic storage medium. The format should be standard and readable (ASPO, pdf file on a CD is a viable option). The documentation should be brought to the Examination Office at Ms. Feineis (Room 01.110) or to Mrs. Beuerlein (for Financial Mathematics, room 01.102) in the building Oswald-Külpe-Weg 84/1. There, the processing time is then documented and your work is sent to the specified reviewers.

The admission work is a compulsory part of all teacher training courses and can be written either in one of the selected subjects (specialization or subject didactics) or in the field of educational science. Details are subjected to the teacher training regulations (LPO I, §29). The admission work should be started about one year before the registration to the state examination.

If you would like to write your admissions work in the field of mathematics or didactics of mathematics, you should personally contact a lecturer in mathematics and decide on a topic (your own suggestions are possible!). The admission work does not have to be registered with the examination office, the arrangements are made directly with the supervisor.

The admission work should be submitted at the latest for registration for the state examination. The deadline for submission is the 1stof February or the 1stof August, provided that the state exam will be taken in the next semester. After consultation with the supervisor, an extension of up to two months can be granted. In this case, the confirmation of the supervisor must be brought to the examination office.

For the delivery of the admission work you need an acknowledgment of receipt, an opinion form and the appropriate "sticker". The documents are available from the responsible Examination Office and must be printed and filled. These forms can be found on the website of the examination office.
