I would perhaps suggest doing the master in math, and then transitioning to PhD, instead of jumping right into a math doctoral program.
Well,I have taken Algebra , Real Analysis, Galois Theory and Commutative Algebra.
This sem I'll be taking Algebraic geometry.
Actually, I'm taking only math courses in my masters as my work revolves much more around pure math than computer science. I can safely say it's computer science only for namesake.
