UNCG Campus Weekly

Campus Weekly is published each Wednesday when classes are in session. In the summer, it is published biweekly.

Dr. Sebastian Pauli

Dr. Sebastian Pauli (Mathematics and Statistics) received new funding from the National Science Foundation for the “UNCG Summer School in Computational Number Theory.” The funding helps in running a summer school in computational number theory for approximately thirty-five participants. The topic for  Summer 2017 is Computational aspects of Hilbert’s 12th Problem. The topic for Summer 2018 will be Geometry and Modular Forms. Each UNCG Summer School in Computational Number Theory runs for a week, from Monday to Friday. On a typical day, external and local experts will give talks in the morning, and in the afternoon students will solve problems related to this material. These will include theoretical as well as programming problems and computer experiments. The aim of the summer school in computational number theory is to complement the traditional training that graduate students receive by exposing them to a constructive and computational approach to many objects in number theory. This furthers their knowledge and gives the students additional tools for their research. Furthermore, the school allows the students to have the opportunity to work closely with experts in the field.
