Thomas Credeur, one of our mathematics PhD students, participated in the Second Chicago Summer School in Geometry and Topology at the University of Chicago, July 25-29, 2016. Please join us as we congratulate Thomas for having been accepted to participate in this noteworthy endeavor.
This summer school was the second in a series of NSF funded summer schools in geometry and topology at the University of Chicago. These summer schools introduce advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students to a broad range of topics that are important to topology. This year the focus was on algebraic topology at a level accessible to undergraduate and graduate students with a solid background in the fundamental group, covering spaces, and the basics of homology and cohomology.
