The Einstein Institute International Undergraduate Workshop
(with support from École Polytechnique and Freie Universität Berlin)
The Einstein Institute of Mathematics will host a 10 day undergraduate workshop, bringing together outstanding (2nd and 3rd year) undergraduate students from Israel and abroad.
The workshop will be centered around two seminar-style courses, each one consisting of talks given by the students themselves and moderated by a faculty member from the institute.
This year the topics are:
- Topics in the Theory of Zeta and L-Functions (moderated by Jasmin Matz).
Description: The Riemann zeta function is the prototypical example of a large zoo of zeta and L-function. Such functions are of central interests in modern number theory. In this seminar we are going to study several examples with an emphasis on analytical and spectral aspects.
- Asymptotic Spectral Theory (moderated by Jonathan Breuer).
Description: Asymptotic spectral theory is concerned with spectral properties of `large' objects (such as matrices or graphs) and the connection of these properties to other characteristics of these objects. We shall study various interesting features as the appear in different examples.
In addition, there will be minicourses by Elon Lindenstrauss (HUJI), Bertrand Remy (Polytechnique), and Jake Solomon (HUJI), general knowledge talks, a problem solving session moderated by Shahar Mozes (HUJI), and a social program.
More information regarding the program will be posted here, as it becomes available.
Location and Dates
To apply please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
- Your name, gender, address, and institution.
- A grade transcript with a clear listing of the courses you've taken so far in your mathematical studies (an informal transcript is OK).
- The name of a contact person from whom we may request a recommendation letter if needed.
An application with only partial information (for example, if you don't have a contact person who'll write you a letter), is better than no application at all!
Applications received by Monday, May 15th, 2017, will receive full consideration.
