Course Outline

Eligibility and Application Procedure

While the course is designed primarily with mathematics graduate students in mind, postdocs and faculty members are also welcome to apply.

Participants should have a basic familiarity with computers and their use. The only specific background requirement is experience in using one or more of the most common text editors. Facility with any of the following, though not required, will increase the level of what the individual can accomplish during the week:
