The Mathematics Department at the Technion is inviting advanced undergraduate students to experience research level mathematics in a week of projects (Sunday-Thursday, September 6-10, 2015). The projects will be mentored by members, postdocs and graduate students from the department. In each project, a group of 2-4 students will investigate one of the following options (press on the project’s name to download its description):
- Ryser’s conjecture (Ron Aharoni)
- Rounding real numbers to integers (Ron Holzman)
- Numerical analysis in auction theory (Nir Gavish)
- Hilbert function spaces of analytic functions in a complex variable (Guy Salomon and Orr Shalit)
- Projection methods – theory, applications and experiments (Rafal Zalas and Simeon Reich)
- The mathematics of juggling (Oliver Sargent and Uri Shapira)
- Random walks with self-interactions (Ross Pinsky)
- Minimal surfaces (Baptiste Devyver)
We shall start the day with a meeting of all participants, and a one hour mathematical talk. Later on, every project group shall separately continue to investigate. We shall also have a couple of coffee-and-cookies breaks every day.
Housing and food for the week is supplied by the Technion.
