PROGRAM IN ALGEBRA, NUMBER THEORY,
AND COMBINATORICS 2007-08
During the year 2007-08, there will be a comprehensive
year long Program in Algebra, Number Theory, and Combinatorics
(ANTC). The ANTC Program will be highlighted by four
international conferences, namely
Group Representations and Combinatorics,
Organizers - Pham Tiep and Peter Sin.
The Chat Yin
Ho Memorial Conference on Combinatorics and Groups, February 21-24, 2008.
Organizers - Neil White, David Drake and Hua Wang
Partitions, q-Series and Modular Forms,
March 12 - 16, 2008.
Organizers - Krishnaswami Alladi, George
Andrews, Alexander Berkovich, and Frank Garvan. This
conference will be preceded by a Student Workshop, March 8 - 11.
the Conrad Legacy, May 5-8, 2008.
An examination of the work of Paul F. Conrad and of its influence
on the development in Ordered Algebraic Structures.
Organizer - Jorge Martinez.
During the year there will be several featured talks of
wide appeal. These include:
The 2007-8 Program will also include special
