Summer Graduate School
|Location:||Tambara Institute, Tokyo|
- Sam Nariman (Northwestern University)
This two week summer school will introduce graduate students to the theory of h-principles. After building up the theory from basic smooth topology, we will focus on more recent developments of the theory, particularly applications to symplectic and contact geometry, and foliation theory.
- Basic Analysis and PDE;
- elementary algebraic topology (homotopy and homology groups).
- elementary differential topology (manifolds, vector fields and differential form calculus, basic Morse theory, vector bundles and characteristic classes).
