Research Academy Series

The Clay Research Academy has been suspended for the time being. The Clay Research Academy provided students of exceptional ability the opportunity to experience the challenge and thrill of mathematical research. Students were selected from an international field of applicants to work in close collaboration with leading mathematical researchers.

In addition to the research component of the program, the Academy opened its doors to the local mathematical community through a series of introductory lectures in topics of interest to current research. Guest lectures were given by distinguished mathematicians and physicists from around the world. A list of previous lectures and notes are available from the following links.
