UNCG Summer School in Computational Number Theory 2014
Modular Forms and Geometry
From May 19 to May 23, 2014, the University of North Carolina at Greensboro is hosting a summer school entitled Modular Forms and Geometry.
Modular forms play an increasingly important role in number theory and arithmetic geometry. The main focus of the summer school is the study of computional aspects of modular forms and related objects. Topics may include classical modular forms and modular symbols, group cohomology and Galois representations, and lattice enumeration and isometry testing techniques to compute with spaces of modular forms for compact forms of classical groups.
The speakers will be
On a typical day, external and local experts will give talks in the morning, and in the afternoon students will solve problems related to this material. The talks early in the week will introduce the students to the subject. Talks later in the week will cover related areas of current research and unsolved problems. The problems given to the students might be of a theoretical nature but could also involve programming problems and computer experiments. All problems will be aimed at increasing the students’ understanding of the material by working with it.
We expect to be able to provide support for approximately ten graduate students (travel, dorm accomodation, food). Interested students should contact us via email at email@example.com by March 16, 2014 with a one paragraph statement of interest and a list of graduate courses taken and also have a letter of reference sent to the same address. We will respond with funding decisions by April 1, 2014.
