Organizing Committee
Abstract

Imagine spending eight-weeks on the beautiful Brown University campus in historic Providence, RI, working in a small team setting to solve mathematical research problems developed by faculty experts in their fields.

Imagine creating career-building connections between peers, near peers (graduate students and postdocs), and academic professionals.

Imagine spending your summer in a fun, memorable, and intellectually stimulating environment.

Now, imagine having this experience with support for travel within the U.S., room and board paid, plus a $3,000 stipend*.

The 2015 Summer@ICERM Program is designed for a select group of 14-16 undergraduate scholars. Students work in groups of two or three, supervised by faculty advisors and aided by teaching assistants. The faculty advisors present a number of interesting research topics that are centered around deep mathematical structures hidden in the everyday objects.

The areas where the problems lie are dynamical systems and low-dimensional topology, but the origins of the problems themselves are mundane: how to find a gap in a fence? how complicated should be your finger movements to tie a knot? why standing waves develop in crowds? To crack the problems will require both ingenuity and computer experiments. Students form research groups to work on these problems, give talks about their findings, and write up their research into a paper at the end of the program.

Program Details

2015 Research Project Topics

During the 2015 Summer@ICERM program the faculty organizers will describe a number of interesting, open-ended problems in combinatorics, discrete geometry, and number theory for study at the Summer@ICERM 2015 program. These problems arise in current research, are amenable to computation and experimentation, and may be approached from a number of different angles.

Funding Includes
  • $3,000 stipend
  • Dormitory housing
  • Meal plan
  • Travel support within U.S.
  • Fun events
  • Brown University students must apply via MathPrograms.org AND contact info@icerm.brown.edu to discuss the special steps needed to apply for a Brown UTRA grant. The UTRA grant is awarded in lieu of the Summer@ICERM funding package.
