Carleton College Summer Mathematics Program for Women

This is an intensive four-week summer mathematics program for undergraduate women who have completer linear algebra but not more than one year of mathematics beyond linear algebra. The courses will be in two areas not normally covered in an undergraduate curriculum. The students will immerse themselves in mathematics, living and working in a supportive community of women scholars (undergraduates, graduates, and post-graduates) who are passionate about learning and doing mathematics. The program's intent is three-fold: to excite these young women about mathematics, to provide them with the tools they will need to succeed in higher-level mathematics, and to connect them with a network of fellow female mathematicians.

Connections for Women: Model Theory and Its Interactions with Number Theory and Arithmetic Geometry

February 10 - 11, 2014

The development of model theory has always been influenced by its potential applications. Recent years have seen a remarkable flowering of that development, with many exciting applications of model theory in number theory and algebraic geometry. The introductory workshop will aim to increase these interactions by exposing the techniques of model theory to the number theorists and algebraic geometers, and the problems of number theory and algebraic geometry to the model theorists. The Connections for Women workshop will focus on presenting current research on the borders of these subjects, with particular emphasis on the contributions of women. In addition, there will be some social occasions to allow young women and men to make connections with established researchers, and a panel discussion addressing the challenges faced by all young researchers, but especially by women, in establishing a career in mathematics.

Connections for Women: Geometric Representation Theory

August 28 - 29, 2014

Within the broad range of geometric representation theory the Connections Workshop will focus on three research topics in which we expect particularly striking new developments within the next few years:

The workshop will bring together researchers from these different topics within geometric representation theory and will thus facilitate a successful start of the semester program. It will give junior researchers from each of these parts of geometric representation theory a broader picture of possible applications and of new developments, and will establish a closer contact between junior and senior researchers. This workshop is aimed at encouraging and increasing the active participation of women and members of under-represented groups in the MSRI program.
