Graduate Research Seminar Mathematical Sciences, Spring 2009

This course is intended for beginning graduate students to help them identify interesting areas of research and possible thesis subjects and advisors. It consists of lectures mainly by professors, but also by other faculty, about current areas of research in mathemaical sciences, with particular emphasis on research areas of Jacobs faculty. Students get involved in discussions of all the areas of research; during the course of the semester, they choose at least three topics which they investigate further and which they elaborate into a research report. At the end of the semester, every student presents at least one of these reports. Participation is also open for advanced undergraduates looking for topics for their undergraduate theses, the results of which are presented as well
