Summer@ICERM: Geometry and Dynamics

Sunday, June 17, 2012 - 8:00pm to Friday, August 10, 2012 - 7:59pm

The Summer@ICERM program is designed for a select group of 10-12 undergraduate scholars. Students will work in small groups of two or three, supervised by a faculty advisor and aided by a teaching assistant. The faculty advisors will describe a variety of enticing open questions in geometry and in dynamical systems of geometric origin. Topics discussed will include Euclidean, hyperbolic and projective geometry, iteration of geometric constructions, and mathematical billiards. A variety of activities around these research themes will allow participants to engage in collaborative research, communicate and examine their findings in formal and informal settings, and report-out their findings with a finished product.

Applications for the 2012 Summer@ICERM program will open on on Dec 1, 2011.

All application materials are due by February 10, 2012.
