The 28th Annual PCMI Summer Session will be held July 1 – July 21, 2018.
Complementing the highly structured Graduate Summer School, which is directed at younger mathematicians, the Research Program in Mathematics addresses the needs of mathematicians who are already carrying out research. The program offers advanced scholars the opportunity to do research, collaborate with their peers, meet outstanding students, and explore new teaching ideas with professional educators.
New and recent PhDs are especially encouraged to apply if they are working in the central field of harmonic analysis or its applications to geometry, partial differential equations, probability, and number theory. Small groups of collaborators from geographically separate areas are also encouraged to apply. The informal format of the Research Program generates lively exchanges of views and information between established and newer researchers.
Seminars will be scheduled throughout the Summer Session giving the Research Program participants an opportunity to give a seminar if they choose. (The organizers will draw up a schedule in consultation with the participants.) Some of these seminars will be accessible to advanced graduate students and postdocs, while others will be intended for more specialized working groups.
A primary goal of the Research Program is to bring together students and researchers interested in these areas to share exciting recent developments in these subjects, stimulate further interactions, and inspire the new generation to pursue research in harmonic analysis and its applications.
