CMI-HIMR Dynamics and Geometry Summer School
Date: 21 June - 2 July 2021
Event type: Research School
Organisers: Viveka Erlandsson (Bristol), John Mackay (Bristol), Jens Marklof (Bristol)
The Clay Mathematics Institute and Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research are organising a virtual two-week summer school on “Dynamics and Geometry”, hosted by the School of Mathematics at the University of Bristol. This will be the third in a series of UK postgraduate mathematics summer schools, jointly funded by the Clay Mathematics Institute and the Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research.
Dynamics and Geometry are two intertwined areas of mathematics that have seen revolutionary breakthroughs in recent years. In this summer school world-leading experts will speak about some of these developments, alongside problem sessions and other opportunities for discussion and interaction.
