Fields Undergraduate Network

The Fields Institute will be hosting a series of workshops aimed at students interested in research level mathematics. For each workshop, the Fields Undergraduate Network has invited four researchers to speak about interesting branches of analysis. At the end of the day, the four researchers will participate in a 1-hour panel discussion on current questions of interest in analysis touching on progress as well as historical developments and overviews.

Establishment of the Fields Undergraduate Network (FUN) will foster activity both at the Fields Institute and at each of the universities affiliated with Fields. It will serve to simultaneously develop students’ conceptions of research in mathematics as well as to bring students and researchers together. We would like to highlight the interactions between different fields of analysis by having our discussion led by researchers working on a variety of different problems in the same field.
