Clay Senior Scholars-in-Residence

In 2004, an innovative partnership, the Clay Mathematics Institute and the Park City Mathematics Institute (PCMI), established the Clay Mathematics Senior Scholar-in-Residence program. Recipients of the Clay Senior Scholar positions are in residence at PCMI for three weeks, actively participating in the Research Program. The scholars also offer public lectures (one lecture each); these lectures are designed for a general audience, and the public is cordially invited to attend. Teachers of mathematics and members of the public with a lively interest in math, young and old, may be especially interested in these lectures.

The Clay Mathematics Institute, based in Peterborough, NH, is dedicated to increasing and disseminating mathematical knowledge. CMI is most famous for its Millenium Prizes, which offer the sum of US $1 million for the solution to any of seven outstanding unsolved problems in mathematics (see www.claymath.org). Most of the Clay Math Institute’s work, however, is carried out through direct support of the research of individual mathematicians (its Fellows and Scholars), and through schools and workshops for researchers and students.
