Mathematics

REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) in Mathematics

 

This program is a part of the HSE Summer University and is designed for undergraduate students majoring in Mathematics or related areas. Participants will work on research projects under supervision of distinguished mathematicians. Guaranteed are at least 8 hours of consultations by assigned advisors and their assistants. A written report is expected as a result of the project; it will be reviewed and evaluated by the advisor. The program takes three weeks during the period from June 20 till August 20, 2018. The exact time span of the program is to be chosen by the participant and confirmed by the advisor.

Some projects offered by the Faculty of Mathematics (more to be announced):

Chris Brav: Linear programming and fundamental domains of complex hyperbolic groups

Sergey Lando: Invariants of Graphs and Knots

Ashley LightfootTwo-dimensional knots and braids

Alexandra Skripchenko: Hausdorff Dimension in Dynamics and Probability

Alexey Gorodentsev: Diophantine Aproximations and Semiorthogonal Geometry

Karine Kuyumzhiyan: Toric geometry

Mauro MarianiPotential theory for non-reversible Markov processes

Vladlen TimorinDynamics of quadratic Thurston rational functions

Alexander Esterov: Volumes of lattice polytopes

 

Note that some advisors may have time restrictions. Applicants may also request a specific topic or a specific advisor (chosen among the HSE Math faculty members); we will do our best to find a match.
