Research experiences in linear algebra and number theory for undergraduate faculty

August 11 to August 15, 2008

at the

American Institute of Mathematics, Palo Alto, California

organized by

Yewande Olubummo, Joe Omojola, and Roselyn Williams

Original Announcement

This workshop will introduce undergraduate faculty to current research opportunities in linear algebra and number theory and will equip them with the necessary tools to mentor students in undergraduate research in mathematics.

Lectures at the workshop will provide background information and introduce open problems. The majority of the workshop will be spent working on problems, reporting on progress, and formulating plans for future work.

Preference will be given to faculty who teach and advise substantial numbers of minority students.
