Curves over Finite Fields in 2016

From Monday, May 9 until Friday, May 20 in 2016, UVU will host a two-week workshop in Number Theory. The workshop is intended for undergraduate students in their fourth year and first-year graduate students who intend to start research in number theory and algebraic geometry.

In this workshop, participants will learn Enrico Bombieri's proof of Weil's theorem and Connes' approach to a proof of the Riemann hypothesis.

Funded by the Number Theory Foundation and Cambridge University Press.

Participants will receive funding towards travel and living expenses. To be eligible for funding, please include a budget with your application.
