The mathematics group at HRI is
involved in research in
several areas of mathematics. It also conducts a graduate
program. In addition to regular seminars,
HRI often hosts conferences on topics of
interest to the mathematics group. This page provides
information on the current activities of the mathematics group.
Please visit the SYM Project Home Page
for the details of the conferences and other activities to be held
during the years 2007-2011.
HRI conducts the Summer Program in Mathematics (SPIM), a scheme for introducing interesting mathematics to undergraduates who have spent three or more years at college. The programme involves intensive lectures on selected topics over a month in the summer of every year.
Students who do well at the SPIM are often invited to spend further periods at HRI, and are considered for admission to the mathematics graduate program. The programme has, in the past, provided HRI with several graduate students.
Information on the SPIM will be
available in these pages, before the start of the programme each
year. The SPIM web
site contains more information about the SPIM programme.
