Faculty of Mathematics & Natural Sciences

Hausdorff Center for Mathematics: Summer School on K-Theory 

Mathematicians from many areas are interested in K-theory, and they all look at it from their own perspective. The program modestly plans to support research in several of the many subareas of K-theory and to promote synergies between the different, but often overlapping, areas.

  • Eligibility: Postgraduate students, post docs
  • Dates: June 19 - 23, 2017
  • Course Language: English
  • Application Deadline: see website

Hausdorff Center for Mathematics: Random Constraint Satisfaction

Constraint satisfaction problems such as graph coloring and boolean satisfiability are fundamental for understanding computational complexity and certain physical processes. Randomly generated instances of these problems are known to have intricate probabilistic structure, and recent work has made good progress in uncovering this structure.
This Hausdorff school is intended for motivated graduate and postdoctoral students who want to get acquainted with this area, its new developments, and the new probabilistic tools that led to them.
 
  • Eligibility: Postgraduate students, post docs
  • Dates: July 17 - 21, 2017
  • Course Language: English
  • Application Deadline: March 31, 2017
  • For further information & application details please visit the program website 

 

Hausdorff Center for Mathematics: Dispersive Equations, Solitons, and Blow-up 

Nonlinear dispersive equations are models for nonlinear waves in a wide range of physical contexts. They display an interplay between linear dispersion and nonlinear interactions, which can result in a wide range of outcomes from finite time blow-up to solitons and scattering. They are linked to many areas of mathematics and physics, ranging from integrable systems and harmonic analysis to fluid dynamics, geometry and general relativity, probabilities.
 
This Hausdorff school is intended for motivated graduate and postdoctoral students who want to get acquainted with the recent developments in this field. There will be three mini-courses and several invited lectures by other experts in the field.
 
  • Eligibility: Postgraduate students, post docs
  • Dates: September 4 - 8, 2017
  • Course Language: English
  • Application Deadline: June 30, 2017

Faculty of Law & Economics

Briq Summer School in Behavioral Economics

The Behavior and Inequality Research Institute (briq) announces the first Summer School in Behavioral Economics in Bonn.
The purpose of the school is to introduce graduate students in economics to various cutting-edge research topics in behavioral economics. The co-organizers are Armin Falk and Botond Kőszegi, who will lecture along with Roland Bénabou, Ernst Fehr, and Ulrike Malmendier. On each day of the week, one faculty member will present results and open questions in one broad recent research agenda in behavioral economics. The schedule will also include plenty of opportunities for students to discuss their ideas and research with faculty and fellow students, and for socializing.
  
  • Eligibility: Postgraduate students
  • Dates: July 10 - 14, 2017
  • Course Language: English
  • Application Deadline: March 15, 2017

BIGS-OAS Summer School 2017: Northeast Asia in History, Politics, Culture and Economics

The BIGS-OAS summer school 2017 provides the participants with basic insights into the political as well as social and cultural history of Northeast Asia. Its main focus is on the current situation, i.e. the development of the 20th century up to the present. In order to do this we will look deeper into political, social and economic developments, primarily in China, Japan, Korea and Mongolia. We will refer to these developments by looking on the mutual influences in popular culture (mainly film and music) as well as in the culture of knowledge and the political environment.
 
The summer school is promoted by the German Academic Exchange Service and funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
  
  • Eligibility: Postgraduate students
  • Dates: July 24 - 28, 2017
  • Course Language: English
  • Application Deadline: May 10, 2017
