BGSMath Graduate Courses

From the fall of 2016, BGSMath offers intensive advanced graduate courses every semester on specialized topics. The duration is 10 to 20 hours distributed along 2 to 3 weeks. Some are in connection with our monthly programs while others stand alone. The courses are organized by BGSMath members and taught by research leaders in the corresponding fields.

2016/2017 Fall semester:

Category theory

Category theory

Registration is now open for the graduate course “Category Theory”, useful to all students in Algebra, Geometry, Topology, Combinatorics, or Logic. Starts Jan 10.

2016/2017 Spring semester:

Random Discrete Structures

Random Discrete Structures

Random methods have become one of the most active and fruitful areas of research in many areas of mathematics, science and engineering, most notably in combinatorics and computer science, in an interplay with probability theory. Starts 29/5.

Algebraic and combinatorial phylogenetics

Algebraic and combinatorial phylogenetics

Over the last ten years a tremendous progress have been observed in the study and design of mathematical models and phylogenetic reconstruction methods. Phylogenetics is the study of ancestral relationships among species. Starts 19/6.
