Inaugural Chicago Summer School In Analysis

June 17 - July 11, 2014

This is the first series of NSF funded summer schools in analysis at the university of Chicago. It intends to introduce advanced undergraduates as well as graduate students and postdocs to a broad range of topics which are important to modern analysis. This includes geometric measure theory, harmonic analysis, dynamical systems, probability and stochastic processes, partial differential equations, and numerical analysis. The introductory two weeks of the program focus on foundational material, and should be accessible to undergraduate and graduate students with a solid background in multivariable calculus, complex variables, measure theory, and basic functional analysis (such as Hilbert spaces). The more advanced two weeks are designed to bring the participants into contact with topics which in and of themselves constitute active research areas. They intend to introduce both techniques and methods, as well as problems of current interest. Applications are welcome to either of these two weeks, or to the full four weeks.

In parallel to the core summer school program there will be an intensive study outreach program, Adventures in Analysis, directed by Robert Fefferman, whose aim is to give students at the advanced undergraduate level an opportunity to explore certain parts of the field that are most important to them. Individuals from underrepresented groups, as defined by the National Science Foundation, are strongly encouraged to apply.

Organizers: M. Csornyei, C. Kenig, R. Fefferman, W. Schlag, L. Silvestre, P. Souganidis.

Practical information

All lectures will take place on the University of Chicago campus. On-campus accommodation and meals will be provided as well as support towards travel expenses.

To apply, submit your application form before March 31st. The application website is administered by the IMA, but no activity will take place there. Applications are open both to US residents and international students.
