How can People with a background in Mathematics pursue PhD in Computer Science"
Although I have a Postgraduate degree in Mathematics with basic programming knowledge,it sounded quite interesting how knowledge in Mathematics can help to solve Computer Science Research Problems.
Since this site is for researchers in Computer Science,Can someone kindly tell:
- What type of problems can a Mathematics postgraduate take up in Computer Science?
- What is the current scenario of research in Computer Science where Mathematicians like us can make a significant impact?
- What are the other skills needed apart from a sound Programming knowlegde to work here?
Any links/references would suffice too.
I have done courses on Linear Algebra,Abstract Algebra,Functional Analysis,Topology,Number Theory and have enjoyed them.
I really dont know how to use the concepts learnt in these courses can be used to solve research questions on Computer Science.
If someone can kindly comment how concepts in the above Mathematical facts can be used to do research in CS,I can understand why a reputed instititution in our country is asking for postgraduate in Mathematics for a PhD in CS.
