Summer Graduate School Geometry and Analysis
HansJoachim Hein (Imperial College, London), LEAD Aaron Naber (Northwestern University)Geometric and complex analysis is the application of tools from analysis to study questions from geometry and topology. This two week summer course will provide graduate students with the necessary background to begin studies in the area. The first week will consist of introductory courses on geometric analysis, complex analysis, and Riemann surfaces. The second week will consist of more advanced courses on the regularity theory of Einstein manifolds, KahlerEinstein manifolds, and the analysis of Riemann surfaces.

Summer Graduate School Stochastic Partial Differential Equations
Yuri Bakhtin (New York University, Courant Institute), LEAD Ivan Corwin (Columbia University), James Nolen (Duke University)Stochastic Partial Differential Equations (SPDEs) serve as fundamental models of physical systems subject to random inputs, interactions or environments. It is a particular challenge to develop tools to construct solutions, prove robustness of approximation schemes, and study properties like ergodicity and fluctuation statistics for a wide variety of SPDEs.
The purpose of this two week workshop is to educate graduate students on the stateoftheart methods and results in SPDEs. The three courses which will be run simultaneously will highlight different (though related) aspects of this area including (1) Fluctuation theory of PDEs with random coefficients (2) Ergodic theory of SPDEs and (3) Exact solvability of SPDEsShow All Collapse Jul 07, 2014

Summer Graduate School Dispersive Partial Differential Equations
Natasa Pavlovic (University of Texas), Nikolaos Tzirakis (University of Illinois at UrbanaChampaign)The purpose of the workshop is to introduce graduate students to the recent developments in the area of dispersive partial differential equations (PDE).
Dispersive equations have received a great deal of attention from mathematicians because of their applications to nonlinear optics, water wave theory and plasma physics. We will outline the basic tools of the theory that were developed with the help of multilinear Harmonic Analysis techniques. The exposition will be as selfcontained as possible.

Workshop Critical Issues in Mathematics Education 2014: The role of the mathematics department in the mathematical preparation of teachers
Deborah Ball (University of Michigan), Solomon Friedberg (Boston College), LEAD Jim Lewis (University of Nebraska), Despina Stylianou (City College, CUNY), Peter Trapa (University of Utah), HungHsi Wu (University of California, Berkeley), Darryl Yong (Harvey Mudd College)The 2014 CIME workshop will focus on the role played by mathematics departments in preparing future teachers. As part of this focus, the workshop will consider two broad questions: What mathematics should teachers know, and how should they come to know this mathematics?
The Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences publication, The Mathematical Education of Teachers II, recommends that, at institutions that prepare teachers, teacher education should be “an important part of a mathematics department’s mission” (p.19). Certainly, at some universities, mathematicians are significantly involved in the mathematical experiences of students who are planning become teachers. But there are many other departments where this is not true. Future mathematics teachers are enrolled in the department’s mathematics classes, but no one is attending to the fact that this is where they are developing mathematical knowledge and (from watching their instructors) ideas about how teach mathematics. This role – whether deliberate or latent –– is vitally important for the mathematical preparation of beginning teachers.
The CIME workshop has three core aims: (A) to acquaint mathematicians with basic facts about teacher education and how teacher education intersects with the math department even when no one is taking special note of the department’s role; (B) to explore a set of key questions and best practices central to taking advantage of the role that mathematics departments do – or could – play in the mathematical preparation of teachers:
 What is known about effective mathematical preparation of teachers, including curriculum, instructional approaches, and assessments?
 What supports do mathematicians and mathematics departments need to carry out this important role effectively? What are examples of successful models and what evidence exists about their effects?
 What are some of the persistent problems or challenges and what are promising examples of addressing these?
and (C) to identify possible action steps to provide more collective capacity for math departments to contribute to teachers’ mathematical education.

Workshop Hot Topics: Perfectoid Spaces and their Applications
Sophie Morel (Princeton University), Peter Scholze (Universität Bonn), LEAD Richard Taylor (Institute for Advanced Study), Jared Weinstein (Boston University)Since their introduction just two years ago, perfectoid spaces have played a crucial role in a number of striking advances in arithmetic algebraic geometry: the proof of Deligne's weightmonodromy conjecture for complete intersections in toric varieties; the development of padic Hodge theory for rigid analytic spaces; a padic analogue of Riemann's classification of abelian varieties over the complex numbers; and the construction of Galois representations for torsion classes in the cohomology of many locally symmetric spaces (for instance arithmetic hyperbolic 3manifolds). We will start the week with an exposition of the foundations of the theory of perfectoid spaces, with the aim of teaching novices to work with them. Then we will discuss their current and potential applications.

Workshop Connections for Women: Model Theory and Its Interactions with Number Theory and Arithmetic Geometry
Kirsten Eisentraeger (Pennsylvania State University), Julia Gordon (University of British Columbia), Deirdre Haskell (McMaster University)The development of model theory has always been influenced by its potential applications.
Recent years have seen a remarkable flowering of that development, with many exciting applications of model theory in number theory and algebraic geometry. The introductory workshop will aim to increase these interactions by exposing the techniques of model theory to the number theorists and algebraic geometers, and the problems of number theory and algebraic geometry to the model theorists. The Connections for Women workshop will focus on presenting current research on the borders of these subjects, with particular emphasis on the contributions of women. In addition, there will be some social occasions to allow young women and men to make connections with established researchers, and a panel discussion addressing the challenges faced by all young researchers, but especially by women, in establishing a career in mathematics.Show All Collapse Feb 10, 2014

Workshop Introductory Workshop: Model Theory, Arithmetic Geometry and Number Theory
Elisabeth Bouscaren (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS)), Antoine ChambertLoir (Université de Paris XI), LEAD Rahim Moosa (University of Waterloo)Model theory is a branch of mathematical logic whose structural techniques have proven to be remarkably useful in arithmetic geometry and number theory. We will introduce in this workshop some of the main themes of the program.
In particular, we will be offering the following tutorials:
1. An Introduction to StabilityTheoretic Techniques, by Pierre Simon.
2. Model Theory and Diophantine Geometry, by Antoine ChambertLoir, Ya'acov Peterzil, and Anand Pillay.
3. Valued Fields and Berkovich Spaces, by Deirdre Haskell and Martin Hils.
4. Model Theory and Additive Combinatorics, by Lou van den Dries.In addition to the tutorials there will be several "state of the art" lectures on the program topics, indicating recent results as well as directions for future work. Speakers include Ekaterina Amerik, Ehud Hrushovski, Alice Medvedev, Terence Tao, and Margaret Thomas.
The introductory workshop aims to familiarize graduate students, postdocs, and nonexperts to major and new topics of the current program. Though the audience is expected to have a general mathematical background, knowledge of technical terminology and recent findings is not assumed.
