Keep in mind, the NSA hires more mathematicians than any other firm in the united states.

So they probably hire the most in the world.


NSA always seems 5 steps ahead of everyone else for some reason, this shit creeps me out.


(pls NSA if you read this thread, do not put me into thought crime camp, i literally dindu nuffin)

enjoy listening to pedantic assholes all day

Mathematicians are useless for applying math to anything in the real world, we'll be fine

/sci/, afaik, said something along the lines that mathematicians are hired because some specific courses they may have taken. Specially number theory because it's applications, such as numerical analysis and cryptography.

>>52521218

Hmm, I have a Master's degree in mathematics and that is highly doubtful. There isn't really any mathemetics you can learn in a course that would be unique to our degree.

It's more likely they hire mathematicians with doctorates, as they usually have research and expertise in fields people with master's degrees usually never get.
>>
>>52521266
Probably.
Are there that many mathematicians out there anyway? Don't most of them get hired in financial firms in their bachelors?
>>
mathematicians are a placebo tier shit
programmers can create better algorithms than them

It seems that they are going to the NSA now.

The NSA hires mathematicians because they want to be the first to discover new applications of cryptography, from cracking current crypto tech developing new cryptosystems.

They also probably do a lot of advanced modelling.

Here it is straight from their website:

" These include, but are not limited to cryptography, data mining, temporal analysis and forecasting, signals analysis, speech and text processing, coding theory, data compression, analysis of communication networks, and computer security."

"To accomplish this goal, MDP members study cryptologic mathematics and related subjects in NSA-taught classes and go on 6-month tours in diverse NSA offices"

Seems like a pretty sweet gig desu.

fuck off you fucking fucks

the fuck is your thread about? how is this related to the discussion of technology?

9 of 12 people in my bachelor's program went for a master's degree, most in algebraic geometry, because of it's application in the oil industry.

Most mathematicians here at least end up in the oil industry or somewhere where mathematical expertise is needed, not so much in financial institutions. I think for that you are better off with some advanced financial degree as you don't really learn anything about quantitative finance with a mathematical degree. Of course it's possible if you specialize your degree for that, but that would mean a program with heavier applied mathematics courses.
>>
If math is just therom and formulas then why do we need a degree for it? Why not just 3 week training in that specific field?
