Mathematics Graduate Program
A mini-conference for entering graduate students
The Saturday-Sunday-Monday lectures will be in Hill 705. Breakfast and Lunch will be available in the lounge, Hill 703.
|This program is presented by faculty and current graduate students to provide a review and fill in gaps in some background expected in standard courses, and to get an idea of the research being done by current students for their dissertations. It is also an opportunity for new students to meet each other and to get acquainted with some continuing graduate students and faculty members. All entering Ph.D. Students are strongly encouraged to attend.|
|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.|
