Fields Undergraduate Summer School on Homological Algebra of Mirror Symmetry (1st Announcement)

There will be an Undergraduate Summer School at the Fields Institute at the University of Toronto. It will run during the week July 27 – August 2, 2019.

The theme of the program will be the Homological Algebra of Mirror Symmetry, in particular in the context of Landau-Ginzburg Models. Mirror symmetry is an active area of research mathematics aimed at understanding certain dualities predicted by theoretical physicists. Students who have a background in abstract algebra and are curious about physics are encouraged to apply.

Lectures will be given by:

Amanda Francis (American Mathematical Society)

Tyler Kelly (University of Birmingham)

Ursula Whitcher (American Mathematical Society)

This program is supported by the National Science Foundation and the Fields Institute. Undergraduate students who are interested should apply by 1 March 2019 for full consideration for financial support.

In addition to finishing the application form, the student should send an electronic copy of their transcript and have a faculty member send a letter of recommendation to hams@yarntheory.net by 1 March 2019.

Members of underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to participate and apply for support. For more information, registration, and to apply for support, please visit our website:

On behalf of the organizers:

Tyler Kelly (Birmingham), Ursula Whitcher (American Mathematical Society)

This message was sent to you via the Geometry List, which announces conferences in geometry and closely related areas to over 1600 mathematicians worldwide.

At http://listserv.utk.edu/archives/geometry.html there are many
functions available, including checking the archives since November
2005, changing your e-mail address or preferences, and joining/leaving
the list. If you have problems that cannot be resolved at this
website, send a message to cplaut@utk.edu.

Before sending an announcement, please carefully read the following.
Any announcements that are *not* about conferences (e.g. those about
jobs, journals, books, etc.) will be rejected by the moderator without
comment. To announce a geometry or closely related conference, send
the announcement (including a conference web site if possible) to
geometry@listserv.utk.edu. The moderator cannot edit your message;
list members will receive the announcement as an e-mail from you
EXACTLY as you submitted it. For example, if your submission starts
with “Please post this on the geometry list” then your conference
announcement will also begin with that statement. In order to keep
down the volume of e-mail, only TWO announcements per conference will
be approved by the moderator. The “subject” of your message should
include the name of the conference and the number (first or second) of
the announcement, e.g. Gauss Memorial Lectures in Geometry: Second
Announcement. Please check that your announcement (especially the
website) is correct. Corrections will be approved only in the most
critical situations, e.g. if corrected information is not available on
the website. After submitting an announcement you may receive a
message asking you to confirm your submission. This feature is
designed to thwart the hundreds of machine-generated spam that are
sent to the list and would otherwise have to be manually blocked by
the moderator. If you do not see your announcement within 48 hours,
please check the archives to see whether it was actually posted (i.e.
you somehow missed seeing the post or are not subscribed with your
current email address). If the announcement is not in the archive,
search for a confirmation message that you may have missed (from
listserv.utk.edu). If none of this solves the mystery, send a message
to cplaut@utk.edu.

The Geometry List is sponsored and maintained by the Mathematics
Department, The University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
