Description

Morehouse College and Spelman College in Atlanta, together with the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, will conduct a weekend workshop on the Morehouse and Spelman College campuses on modern developments in mathematics that will be the focus of upcoming research programs and summer graduate programs at MSRI, supplemented by additional special invited talks. All presentations will be expository, intended for faculty who may not be closely working in these areas, as well as for graduate students who have had the usual general preparation for advanced study in the early part of a Ph.D. program but who may not yet have specialized. Talks on MSRI programs will include descriptions of different ways to be involved with these programs. The speakers, as listed below, will also be available for one-on-one discussions with those who are interested. If you are interested in participating in this workshop, please register on line. Some funding is available; if you wish to apply for funding, do so by completing the rest of the registration form. This workshop will be held on Saturday at Morehouse College and on Sunday at Spelman College.
