The summer program kicks off with the two week Bootcamp:

Computational Mathematics Bootcamp
Tuesday May 26 – Friday June 5
Location: 239 Altgeld Hall
Instructor: Sean Shahkarami
Coordinator: Anil Hirani

Prepare and Train
Monday June 15 – Monday July 27
Location: 159 and 173 Altgeld Hall
Instructor: Boris Shapiro, Univ. of Stockholm
Topics: Random matrix pencils, their related sorting networks, monodromy, and applications to physics. Students will explore open problems using theoretical and computational methods – the problems will cover several levels of difficulty, and so both beginning students (“Prepare”) and continuing students (“Train”) are welcome. The mathematical methods will be drawn from linear algebra, spectral theory, probability, geometry, and complex analysis.


Various dates. Hosts to be arranged.
