First Chicago Summer School in Geometry and Topology
June 22-26, 2015
This is the first in a series of NSF funded summer schools in geometry and topology at the University of Chicago. Over several years it intends to introduce advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students to a broad range of topics that are important to topology. This year the focus is on surfaces and should be accessible to undergraduate and graduate students with a solid background in covering spaces and basic differential topology.
Organizers: Danny Calegari, Alex Eskin, Benson Farb, Howard Masur, Peter May, Alden Walker, Amie Wilkinson.
Registration for this summer school is now closed. Registered students will be contacted by email shortly. Financial support will be available for some qualified applicants. Because of funding restrictions, priority must be given to US citizens and permanent residents.
