2003 IMA PI Summer Program for Graduate Students
Combinatorics and its Applications
July 14-August 1, 2003


Complete List of IMA PI Graduate Students Programs

During July 14-August 1, 2003 the Georgia Institute of Technology will be the host of the Institute for Mathematics and its Applications (IMA) summer graduate program in mathematics. The course will concentrate on Combinatorics and its Applications. This program is open to graduate students from IMA Participating Institutions. Students are nominated by their department head. Participating institution department heads nominate graduate students from their institution by an e-mail to visit@ima.umn.edu with the students' names and e-mail addresses. Those students may then register by filling out the registration form. Places are guaranteed for two graduate students from each participating institution, with additional students accommodated as space allows.
