Summer Graduate School
|Location:||Tambara Institute, Tokyo|
This two week summer school will introduce graduate students to the theory of h-principles. After building up the theory from basic smooth topology, we will focus on more recent developments of the theory, particularly applications to symplectic and contact geometry, and foliation theory.
For eligibility and how to apply, see the Summer Graduate Schools homepage
- Basic Analysis and PDE;
- elementary algebraic topology (homotopy and homology groups).
- elementary differential topology (manifolds, vector fields and differential form calculus, basic Morse theory, vector bundles and characteristic classes).
