The Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences is sponsoring a summer school in algebra for undergraduate students.
Aim and scope
The school will introduce participants to three exciting aspects of algebra they are unlikely to encounter in a typical undergraduate curriculum in this form. Three main courses will focus on selected topics in
- Algebraic geometry
- Lie theory
- Number theory
In addition there will be project based sessions.
The school will feature special lectures by
(University of Wisconsin)
Other lectures will be given by Paul Buckingham, Vladimir Chernousov, Gerald Cliff, Charles Doran, Terry Gannon, Nicolas Guay, Jochen Kuttler, Matilde Lalín, James Lewis, David McNeilly, Arturo Pianzola, and Al Weiss (all University of Alberta).
The school is aimed at advanced undergraduate students who have finished 2-3 years of an honours program in mathematics or a comparable program.
The application deadline was February 28, 2009, and we no longer accept applications.
Participants may find important practical information here.
The school will take place at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada. More details on classrooms and schedule will be posted on time.
