Research experiences for undergraduate faculty

July 20 to July 24, 2009

at the

American Institute of Mathematics, San Jose, California

organized by

Leslie Hogben and Roselyn Williams

Original Announcement

This workshop will introduce undergraduate faculty to research opportunities in graph theory, algebra, linear algebra and number theory that will equip them with the necessary tools to mentor students in undergraduate research in mathematics. Lectures at the workshop will provide background information and introduce open problems. The majority of the workshop will be spent working on problems, reporting on progress, and formulating plans for future work.

Preference will be given to faculty who teach and advise substantial numbers of minority students.
