Description 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. 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. This workshop requires a special application with a January 20, 2008 deadline. For application forms and information about the courses, please visit http://www.admin.ias.edu/ma/current/program_gradsummer.php MSRI will provide travel and subsistence support for approximately one dozen selected students from MSRI Academic Sponsoring Institutions. Application deadline is January 20, 2008.
