 Publishing your research
The UIUC number theory group is among the largest (and quite possibly
the largest) in the country, with about a dozen faculty members
representing a broad range of interests in number theory.
In this seminar, which will run through the duration of the program,
many of the local number theory faculty will give
accessible talks on topics related to their research interests.
In addition, it is hoped that at least some the REU participants
themselves will give talks describing their own research; if
necessary, we will add a second weekly session to accommodate these
talks.
While not connected with the REU program,
many of the talks given in this seminar will be accessible to the REU
participants. The speakers will mostly be graduate students, and
their talks will provide a sampling of the research that our graduate
students are engaged in.
Research Projects
In the third week of the program (and possibly earlier),
participants will begin
working on invidual research projects, under the guidance of a faculty
member. We will provide a list of possible projects, and
participants will be able (within limits) to choose among several
options.
Some projects will be related to the topics of the two short courses,
but we will also have projects on other topics.
