Comprehensive Examination Requirements All candidates for graduate degrees must pass one or more comprehensive examinations. If a student elects to follow the thesis option for the degree, a committee to direct the written thesis will be established.
Thesis proposals vary by department and discipline. Please see your department for proposal guidelines and requirements.
If the thesis research involves human subjects, the student must obtain exemption or approval from the Texas State Institutional Review Board prior to submitting the proposal form to The Graduate College.
The IRB approval letter should be included with the proposal form. Failure to submit the thesis proposal in a timely fashion may result in delayed graduation. Thesis Committee The thesis committee must be composed of a minimum of three approved graduate faculty members.
Thesis Enrollment and Credit The completion of a minimum of six hours of thesis enrollment is required. For a student's initial thesis course enrollment, the student will need to register for thesis course number A.
After that, the student will enroll in thesis B courses, in each subsequent semester until the thesis is defended with the department and approved by The Graduate College.

Preliminary discussions regarding the selection of a topic and assignment to a research supervisor will not require enrollment for the thesis course. The number of thesis credit hours students enroll in must reflect the amount of work being done on the thesis that semester.
It is the responsibility of the committee chair to ensure that students are making adequate progress toward their degree throughout the thesis process. Failure to register for the thesis course during a term in which supervision is received may result in postponement of graduation.
After initial enrollment in A, the student will continue to enroll in a thesis B course as long as it takes to complete the thesis.
Thesis projects are by definition original and individualized projects. As such, depending on the topic, methodology, and other factors, some projects may take longer than others to complete.
If the thesis requires work beyond the minimum number of thesis credits needed for the degree, the student may enroll in additional thesis credits at the committee chair's discretion. In the rare case when a student has not previously enrolled in thesis and plans to work on and complete the thesis in one term, the student will enroll in both A and B.
If acceptable progress is not being made in a thesis course, the instructor may issue a grade of F. If the student is making acceptable progress, a grade of PR is assigned until the thesis is completed. A student who has selected the thesis option must be registered for the thesis course during the term or Summer I during the summer, the thesis course runs ten weeks for both sessions in which the degree will be conferred.
The following must be submitted to The Graduate College by the thesis deadline listed on The Graduate College website: One 1 PDF of the thesis in final form, approved by all committee members, uploaded in the online Vireo submission system.
After the dean of The Graduate College approves the thesis, Alkek Library will harvest the document from the Vireo submission system for publishing in the Digital Collections database according to the student's embargo selection. While original wet signatures are preferred, there may be situations as determined by the chair of the committee in which obtaining original signatures is inefficient or has the potential to delay the student's progress.
In those situations, the following methods of signing are acceptable: If this process results in more than one document with signatures, all documents need to be submitted to The Graduate College together. No copies are required to be submitted to Alkek Library.
However, the library will bind copies submitted that the student wants bound for personal use. Personal copies are not required to be printed on archival quality paper. The student will take the personal copies to Alkek Library and pay the binding fee for personal copies.
Master's level courses in Mathematics: This course is concerned with techniques used in the teaching of mathematics.
This course is required as a condition of employment for graduate teaching and instructional assistants. This course does not earn graduate degree credit.
Repeatable with different emphasis. The student continues to enroll in this course until the thesis is submitted for binding. A study of the development of mathematics and of the accomplishments of men and women who contributed to its progress. Cannot be used on a degree plan for M.This thesis presents results of my PhD research in Numerical Analysis of Diﬀerential Equations at the Centre for Mathematical Sciences atCambridge University.
The School of Mathematics provides opportunities for study in a wide range of mathematical disciplines. First-year graduate sequences include algebra, analysis, differential equations, geometry, numerical analysis, probability, quantitative finance, statistics, and topology in addition to courses in methods of applied mathematics.

Abstract. The main aim of the present paper is mainly focused on applying Hirota bilinear method to the (3+1)-dimensional KP equation. First, by introducing logarithm transformation, the nonlinear equations are transformed into bilinear forms. A family of nonlinear differential.
