Workshop on Integer Partitions

  • DatesMay 21-25, 2018 (Arrival to the Village: 20 May 2018, departure from the Village: 25 May 2018)  
  • AimsTo introduce the audience to the integer partitions research, classical and brand new. The topics of the workshop will be self contained and no previous knowledge will be required. We are only requiring the participants` willingness to learn new ideas. This workshop is suitable for any audience that is at least at the level of an upper undergraduate at mathematics. 
  • Who may participate?Upper undergraduate or Graduate student with basic mathematical maturity and a strong interest in integer partitions.  
  • Quota 20 person
  • FeesThe fee is 625 TL for dormitories. This covers accomodation, four meals a day and all the facilities that the Village offer. If you need financial support please write it to application form.
