Appalachian Set Theory Workshop
Fields Institute

Supported by:

This series of workshops on set theory for the Appalachian region is supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF 0631446). There are three workshops per year, each of which is devoted to a single topic such as a broadly applicable method, a complex seminal paper or a significant unpublished theorem. The location and topic for each workshop is announced several months in advance together with suggested background reading. The immediate goal is for faculty and students who are not experts in the topic to get to the point where they can start to use its techniques in one or two intensive days. Each time, an expert in the topic is invited to lead the workshop, which could mean doing all the lecturing herself or himself, or delegating parts to others. Those wishing to attend may apply to have some of their travel expenses reimbursed. Students are hired to generate notes that are disseminated on the web. Special emphasis is given to encouraging the participation of mathematicians from underrepresented groups. Click for instructions on how to apply for funds to attend a workshop.
