The application Deadline: Friday February 13, 2015.
The 2015 Summer@ICERM program is designed for a select group of 14-16 undergraduate scholars. Students work in groups of two or three, supervised by faculty advisors and aided by teaching assistants.
The Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in Mathematics (ICERM), founded in 2011, is a research institute in mathematics at Brown University, funded beginning in 2010 by a grant from the National Science Foundation
The faculty advisors present a number of interesting research topics that are centered around deep mathematical structures hidden in the everyday objects. The areas where the problems lie are dynamical systems and low-dimensional topology, but the origins of the problems themselves are mundane: how to find a gap in a fence? how complicated should be your finger movements to tie a knot? why standing waves develop in crowds?
To crack the problems will require both ingenuity and computer experiments. Students form research groups to work on these problems, give talks about their findings, and write up their research into a paper at the end of the program.
Imagine spending eight-weeks on the beautiful Brown University campus in historic Providence, RI, working in a small team setting to solve mathematical research problems developed by faculty experts in their fields.
Imagine creating career-building connections between peers, near peers (graduate students and postdocs), and academic professionals.
Imagine spending your summer in a fun, memorable, and intellectually stimulating environment.
Now, imagine having this experience with support for travel within the U.S., room and board paid, plus a $3,000 stipend*.
Applicants must not yet have graduated with an undergraduate degree at the time of the program start. Funding is available for a limited number of students who are not US citizens or permanent residents.
Applications are being accepted via MathPrograms.org (under “Brown University”).
