The Department of Mathematics at Pomona College will offer an 8-week program to conduct research in Algebraic Geometry & Number Theory. The program, entitled PRiME (Pomona Research in Mathematics Experience), will run from June 13 through August 7, 2021. The program is being sponsored by the National Security Agency (H98230-21-1-0015).The REU will be run virtually. Programming will include background lectures for the first 2 weeks on topics such as Group Theory, Differential Geometry, Elliptic Curves, Modular Curves, Belyi Maps, and Dessins d'Enfants. There will be three research groups working independently for the following 6 weeks. Participants attend various colloquia featuring outside speakers. At the end of the summer, assuming health restrictions allow, participants will travel to Sacramento, CA to attend the MAA MathFest.
During the summer, each of the undergraduate participants will:
In order to successfully complete this project, participants will:
Participants in the PRiME program will receive:
Students must be undergraduates in good standing, although preference will be given to applicants who will begin either their junior or senior year in the Fall of 2021. National Security Agency (NSA) funding also requires that participants must be either US Citizens or Permanent Residents. Unfortunately, we are not accepting applications from students who may provide their own funding.
Applications for the PRiME program should be submitted through MathPrograms.org.
For full consideration, applications should be received no later than February 15, 2021. Decisions will be announced by March 1, 2021. Questions should be directed to Edray Goins at email@example.com.
