About the IAS/Park City
Preface from Volume II
City Mathematics Institute (PCMI) was founded in 1991 as part of the "Regional
Geometry Institute" initiative of the National Science Foundation. In mid 1993 it
found an institutional home at the Institute for Advanced
Study (IAS) in Princeton. The PCMI will continue to hold summer programs in both Park
City and in Princeton.
The IAS/Park City Mathematics Institute encourages
research and education in mathematics and fosters interaction between the two. The
month-long Summer Session offers programs for researchers and postdoctoral scholars,
graduate students, undergraduates, and high school teachers. One of our main goals is to
make all of the participants aware of the total spectrum of activities that occur in
mathematics education and research: we wish to involve professional mathematicians in
education and to bring modern concepts in mathematics to the attention of educators. To
that end, the Summer Session features general sessions designed to encourage interaction
among the various groups. In-year activities at sites around the country form an integral
part of the Program for High School Teachers.
Each summer a different topic is chosen as the focus
of the Research Program and Graduate Summer School. (Activities in the Undergraduate
Program deal with this topic as well.) Lecture notes from the Graduate Summer School are
being published each year in the Series. The first volume contains notes from the 1991
Summer School on the Geometry and Topology of Manifolds and Quantum Field Theory.
The second volume is from the 1992 Summer School Nonlinear Partial Differential
Equations in Differential Geometry. The 1993 Summer School Higher Dimensional
Algebraic Geometry, the 1994 Summer School Gauge Theory and the Topology of
Four-Manifolds, and the 1995 Summer School Nonlinear Wave Phenomena are in
preparation for publication.
We plan to publish material from other parts of the
IAS/Park City Mathematics Institute in the future, including the interactive activities
which are a primary focus of the PCMI. At the Summer Session, late afternoons are devoted
to seminars of common interest to all participants. Many deal with current issues in
education; others treat mathematical topics at a level which encourages broad
participation. Several popular evening programs are also well-attended. These include
lectures, panel discussions, computer demonstrations, and videos. The PCMI has also
spawned interactions between universities and high schools at a local level. We hope to
share these activities with a wider audience in future volumes.

Information for PCMI Authors
Your manuscript must be prepared using our TeX style files
(which are a variant of the standard AMS style files). Style files are available in both AMSTeX and (AMS-)LaTeX formats.
If you have any technical problems with these files, please
email Catherine Giesbrecht at email@example.com. For
other questions related to the PCMI Publications, please email the series editor David
Morrison at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are
interested, more information is available about the AMS Book Publishing Program.
Instructions for Submitting Manuscripts
Please check your completed manuscript as carefully as
possible. Use a spell checker, if available. Remove any magnification or page size
adjustments. Then take measures to eliminate all overflow lines.
Once you submit the completed file to the IAS you will not
be able to make further corrections directly to the TeX files. Someone at the IAS will
check your document for proper formatting and return page proofs to you. You can make
written corrections at this stage, but we hope they will be kept to a minimum.
Here is the submission procedure. You first need to collate
and compress your files using a program called uufiles. Information and a copy of
the program for unix, mac, and dos is available on the uufaq. Put all of the relevant
files in one directory. It should include all TeX files, graphics files, and any special
instructions or comments in a README file. Then run uufiles to obtain a file
your_name.uu. Now email David Morrison at email@example.com
including the file your_name.uu as text. Please send another email to Catherine
Giesbrecht at firstname.lastname@example.org with a message saying
that you submitted your manuscript. Finally, send a hard copy of the completed manuscript
Institute for Advanced Study
Princeton, NJ 08540
Your manuscript will be checked at the IAS for correct
formatting and a hardcopy corrected version will be sent back to you for final
corrections. If you have any questions about these procedures, or about your manuscript,
please contact Catherine Giesbrecht at 609-734-8290 or 800-PCM-IIAS.
