Summer Northwestern Analysis Program

SNAP 2017

Partial Differential Equations

Northwestern University
July 24-August 11, 2017



The Summer Northwestern Analysis Program (SNAP 2017) is a three-week summer school in Analysis to be held at Northwestern University, as part of the activities of the NSF RTG grant "Analysis on Manifolds". It will feature three weeks of mini-courses of increasing level of specialization, aimed at undergraduate and graduate students and recent PhDs, in various topics in analysis. The theme of SNAP 2017 is Partial Differential Equations.

Date, Time and Location

The Summer Northwestern Analysis Program will be held at the Department of Mathematics of Northwestern University from Monday, July 24, 2017 to Friday, August 11, 2017. The lectures will be held in Frances Searle Building Room 1-441 (Weeks 1 and 2) and in Technological Institute Room L361 (Week 3). For directions on how to get to Frances Searle Building and Technological Institute, click on these links for maps.

Please be aware that because of construction on campus some paths to the Frances Searle Building may be closed. Please give yourself an extra time to find the building on Monday morning.

Undergraduate and graduate students, fresh Ph.D.s and under-represented minorities are especially encouraged to participate. Partial financial support is available for US citizens and permanent residents.

The Summer Program is supported by the Mathematics Department at Northwestern University and by the NSF RTG grant "Analysis on Manifolds".

Program Outline

Week 1 - Analysis Bootcamp
These are introductory mini-courses in analysis aimed principally at graduating seniors who will enter a PhD program in the mathematical sciences in the Fall. However, all undergraduate math majors and beginning graduate students in mathematics are welcome to apply. Problem solving will be a major part of this week's activities. It is expected that students have completed a basic first course in analysis (at the level of, for example, Rudin's Principles of Mathematical Analysis). Preferably, students should have also taken a course in complex analysis. The mini-course speakers are: A special lecture will be given by Laura DeMarco (Northwestern). Week 2 - Topics in PDE
This week's mini-courses in PDE are aimed at first and second year PhD students in mathematics with an interest in PDE research. Advanced undergraduates are also welcome to apply. The courses will assume a knowledge of analysis at the level typically seen in first year graduate classes in analysis. The mini-course speakers are: Week 3 - Advanced Topics in PDE
This week is aimed at mathematics PhD students who are interested in or actively carrying out research in PDEs. Postdoctoral scholars are also welcome to apply to this week of the program. The mini-course speakers are:

Registration

All participants must register online, even those who are not applying for funding. If demand exceeds the number of available spots, priority will be given to those who register before March 1, 2017.

The electronic registration form is available here.

Financial Support

The Summer Northwestern Analysis Program is supported by the Mathematics Department at Northwestern University and by the NSF RTG grant "Analysis on Manifolds".
Partial financial support is available for undergraduates, graduate students and recent PhDs who are US citizens or US permanent residents. Women mathematicians and members of other under-represented groups are especially encouraged to apply for support.

People interested in applying for travel funds should indicate so in the electronic registration form. Priority will be given to those who send their request for support before March 1, 2017.
