The International Centre for Theoretical Sciences (ICTS); Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Survey No. 151, Shivakote, Hesaraghatta Hobli, Bengaluru-560 089, has invited applications for the Summer School in Mathematics and Statistics for Women, of two weeks duration.
The Programme will be held at Ramanujan Lecture Hall, ICTS Bangalore from 13th May, 2019 to 24th May, 2019.
The Summer School is intended for women students studying in first year B.A/B.Sc./B.E./B.Tech or equivalent degree and having Mathematics as one of the major subjects/courses, during the academic year 2018-2019. The school aims at helping young students gain broader exposure to problem solving skills in Mathematics and Statistics at the undergraduate level.
Specific topics that will be covered include Mathematical Thinking, Advanced Calculus, Linear Algebra, Probability and Statistics. There will be problem solving sessions across topics. Each topic will have a brief introductory lecture session on a focus area followed by problem solving sessions on it. The participants are expected to work together to solve the problem sheets that will be given out in these sessions.
There will also be two popular science lectures by distinguished researchers each day, covering topics across all sciences. Other daily events will include post dinner Problem solving sessions and discussions with popular science speakers of the day.
There will also be several short video talks that will be shown from aspiring to established women researchers in the areas of Mathematical sciences. Further there will be opportunity to interact with many women scientists who will visit the program for short periods.
Eligibility: Applicant should be enrolled in a first year of B.A./B.Sc./B.E./B.Tech. or equivalent degree during the academic year 2018-19, with Mathematics as one of the major subjects/courses.
