Summer Graduate School
|Location:||Park City Math Institute - Institute for Advanced Study|
The Graduate Summer School bridges the gap between a general graduate education in mathematics and the specific preparation necessary to do research on problems of current interest. In general, these students will have completed their first year, and in some cases, may already be working on a thesis. While a majority of the participants will be graduate students, some postdoctoral scholars and researchers may also be interested in attending.
We strongly recommend that graduate students have already had the equivalent of rigorous first year graduate-level courses in topology, algebra and analysis.
The main activity of the Graduate Summer School will be a set of intensive short lectures offered by leaders in the field, designed to introduce students to exciting, current research in mathematics. These lectures will not duplicate standard courses available elsewhere. Each course will consist of lectures with problem sessions. Course assistants will be available for each lecture series. The participants of the Graduate Summer School meet three times each day for lectures, with one or two problem sessions scheduled each day as well.
Please visit the PCMI workshop home page for further details on the subject and the format of the summer school. Complete information will be available on November 1, 2012
- In addition to the nomination at MSRI, a separate PCMI Application (Application deadline: January 31, 2013) is required to participate in this workshop.
- Due to the small number of students supported by MSRI, only one student per institution will be accepted.
