The students will participate in the following activities:
- Working on a research project in Mathematics during the month of July. This will be done under the supervision of an Advisor/Tutor, and may consist of reading one or a few research papers (or book chapters), or working on a small open problem.
- Attendance to the Minicourses (4 short courses of 4 or 5 hours long) that will take place during the weeks of July 1-4 and 8-11. The courses are given by professors from catalan universities research centers covering a wide range of areas in mathematics. Still to be decided by the organization committee.
- Attendance to the Round Table: ‘Academic career in mathematical research: what to do and when’ and a General Public talk (topic still to decide), that will take place during the afternoon in mid-July.
- Participation in weekly social events (coffee breaks during the minicourses, and one social pizza evening for each week of July).
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.
LIST OF PROJECTS AND ADVISORS
Each of these courses will be 4h or 5h long, and will take place at Facultat de Matemàtiques i Estadística de la Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (FME).
Gissell Estrada | Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya
Title: From particle systems to collisional kinetic equations: An introduction
Núria Fagella | Universitat de Barcelona
Title: Exotic topology in complex dynamics.
Abstract: In this course we will discover exotic topological objects that appear naturally as invariant sets of holomorphic dynamical systems, like for example Cantor sets, Sierpinski carpets, indecomposable continua or Cantor bouquets among many others. To find them, we will introduce the basics of iteration of holomorphic maps on the complex plane and the surprising properties of its invariant fractals.
Joaquim Ortega | Universitat de Barcelona
Title: Roots of random polynomials and random analytic functions.
Abstract: Motivated by the need to understand particles with a local repulsion, the following model has been proposed: Consider a polynomial with independent random coefficients and let us compute its zeros in the complex plane. This is easily simulated numerically. The careful choice of random coefficients allows us to obtain a random distribution of zeros which are invariant under translations in the plane or Möbius transforms in the unit disk. We will study the interplay between complex analysis, probability, and potential theory.
