INTRODUCTION

This will be the first ‘Barcelona Introduction to Mathematical Research’ Summer Program organized by CRM-UB with professors from UB-UAB-UPC-CRM, which aims to attract students in Mathematics (mainly in their 3rd or 4th year) from any university (in Barcelona or elsewhere).

The program will consist of a research project, four minicourses and other activities.

RESEARCH PROJECT (JULY 1ST-JULY 29TH)

The students will work on a research project in Mathematics during the month of July 2022.

This will be done under the supervision of a senior Advisor, and will consist of reading one or a few research papers (or book chapters) and/or working on a small open problem.

A committee will assign the students to their senior Advisors based on the preferences of both.

Here you have the list of Advisors and projects.
