Summer Projects in Mathematics 2018

SUMMER PROJECTS IN MATHEMATICS AT THE TECHNION

Sunday-Friday, September 2-7, 2018

The registration is still closed 

The Faculty of Mathematics at the Technion is inviting motivated undergraduate students (finishing their 2nd and 3rd year*) to experience research level mathematics in a week of projects. The projects will be mentored by professors, postdocs and graduate students from the faculty. Each group will consist of 2-4 students working on the same research topic. In addition, the program includes social gatherings with the faculty members. Housing, meals, and a stipend will be provided.

(*) Registration will be open for students from all departments as well as for master students at the beginning of their studies.

1. Lior Alon and Ram Band:  How many wave lengths can fit in a quantum graph

2. Avi Berman: Graphs that are detemined by their spectra

3. Michael Cwikel: Rational Tangles

4. Vadim Derkach, Habiba Kalantarova and Amy Novick-Cohen: Mean Curvature and Surface Diffusion Motions Symmetries and Special Solutions
