This year I am again on the organizing committee of the Women and Mathematics program at Princeton’s Institute for Advanced Study. Our subject is “p-adic Langlands Program.” It is a fashionable, advanced and very influential program connecting number theory and representation theory.
We invite undergraduate students, graduate students and post-docs to apply. In 2009-2010 the Institute has been running a special year in Analytic Number Theory. That has brought many number theorists to the institute already, so there will be a lot of people to talk to.
Last year I promised to hold a math party during the program. But I had to cancel it due to a scheduling conflict with George Hart’s ZomeTool Workshop. I am planning a party this year. Either way, we’ll have fun.
If you want to learn about the Langlands program, to spent time on the beautiful grounds of the Institute, to eat in one of the best cafeterias around, and to make new friends with other women interested in number theory, then please apply. The application deadline is February 20.Share:
