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:
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 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.
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.
The main purpose of this course is to explore several applications of Fourier analytic techniques in number theory and combinatorics, as well as their interactions.
The course is an introduction to theoretical and computational aspects of curves of small genus as well as their Jacobians.
Previous graduate courses
The theme of p-adic modular forms was initiated in the 70’s by Serre and Katz, who also gave the first important applications to the construction of p-adic L-functions. Starts Jan 30. Registration open.
