Introduction to Mathematics at Rutgers - IMR 2004


Mathematics Graduate Program

a mini-conference for entering graduate students
(all events in Hill 705)

Faculty and current graduate students present this program to help new students review some background expected in standard courses, and perhaps begin to discover what's new. We hope students will use this time to meet each other and to get acquainted with some continuing graduate students and faculty members. Ideally, therefore, all entering students should attend all presentations.

 Details of IMR 2004 activities

Lectures will give simple examples and will stress the foundational importance of the topics. Connections among areas of mathematics and applications will be emphasized whenever possible. The presentations will be neither too technical nor too rapid. We believe that all of the lectures will be useful to all of the students. "Glimpses" will be given by graduate students of their work in some prominent research areas of the department. We also hope students will enjoy the recreational opportunites provided.

Said by an anonymous IMR student:
I can't wait for classes to start so I only have to go to one or two lectures a day.
