Summer Projects 2019

You are invited to take part in our:

Math Research Week 2019 

September 8-13, 2019


The Mathematics faculty 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 and postdocs from the Faculty of Mathematics. 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.

Projects and mentors:

  1. Tali PinskyThe Lie algebra of modular knots
  2. Avi Berman: Expander graphs
  3. Liran Rotem: The geometric mean of convex bodies
  4. Amy Novick-Cohen: Geometric motions
  5. Alex Margolis and Ivan LevcovitzQuasi-isometries of trees and infinite ended spaces
  6. Uri Shapira, and 2 postdocs: Linear flows in the space of lattices
  7. Nick CrawfordFermions and spanning forests
  8. Simeon Reich & Victor Kolobov: Projection Methods
  9. Orr ShalitNumercial explorations of open problems in operator theory
  10. Shoham Sabach & Shimrit ShternClassifying critical points of nonconvex quadratic functions

The number of positions is limited. Please apply as soon as possible.

Organizers: Michael Khanevsky Nir Lazarovich, Tali Pinsky, Ron Rosenthal

(*) Registration is open also to master students at the beginning of their studies.
