Penn State  GöttingenSummer Schools in Mathematics

Prerequisites: Measure and integration theory, Lebesgue integral. A course on functional analysis and/or differential equations is helpful, though not strictly necessary. We can participate with 10 math undergraduates. Each student will be subsidized with up to EUR 1,500. With more students interested than places available priority will be given to those relating to mathematical analysis and neighboring fields. If you wish to participate, please contact Prof. Ingo Witt, 

Organizational structure of the event: The first two weeks will be seeing an educational part that will consist of lecture classes in the mornings and supervised theoretical and computer lab work in the afternoons. Penn State and Göttingen faculty will teach a total of 3–4 lecture courses (8–10 lectures per course, 50 min per lecture). This will be followed by an international research conference on the featured topic that will take place during the third week. Students will be working in teams, each Germany based student will work with one student who is based in the U.S. Each team will be assigned several tasks that are to be accomplished during and after the Summer School. This includes theoretical work, work in a computer lab, and a research project for each team that is to result in a project paper due in December 2010 after their participation in the Summer School.
