Galois Representations
Abstract: Many advances on the algebraic side of number theory in the last 15 years (such as the solutions of the Shimura-Taniyama conjecture, Sato-Tate conjecture and Serre’s conjecture, as well as decisive progress on the Fontaine-Mazur conjecture and Main Conjectures for modular forms) have relied in an essential way on improvements in the theory of Galois representations.
The aim of the three main courses is to present an overview of many of these ideas and applications, aimed at advanced graduate students and postdocs with a strong background in number theory, Galois cohomology, and basic algebraic geometry.

School and University Partnership for Educational Renewal in Mathematics

SUPER-M is a project in the NSF Graduate STEM Fellows in K-12 Education (GK-12) Program that supports fellowships and training for graduate students in mathematics. Each of the six fellows recruited for 2010-2011 is partnered with a teacher from a local K-12 school, both on Oahu and the Neighbor Islands. The goal of the partnership is to create opportunities for the fellows to communicate their research to a variety of audiences and to enhance the mathematics taught in the K-12 learning environments.

Mathematical Biology

UH has received a National Science Foundation grant which will pay for math and biology majors to participate in interdisciplinary research and training at UH.  Interested students are encouraged to inquire before registering for classes for next semester.

In particular, students with at least one year of calculus are encouraged to enroll in Math 305, which is concerned with probabilistic models in biology.  

Please contact Prof. Les Wilson for further information or go to the UH Math Biology website.
