QUADRATIC FORMS, SUMS OF SQUARES,
THETA FUNCTIONS AND INTEGRAL
LATTICES WORKSHOP AND CONFERENCE

March 7 - 15, 2009

University of Florida, Gainesville

FUNDING provided by the National Science Foundation (PI: Krishnaswami Alladi; CoPI: Pham Huu Tiep).


STUDENT WORKSHOP

will take place March 7 - 10, 2009 and will precede the conference. Professor Jonathan Hanke (University of Georgia) will be the Principal Instructor for the Student Workshop. Professor Hanke will give a SERIES OF FOUR LECTURES (one each morining) on the general geometry of quadratic forms, and properties of them over local and global fields and rings of integers. His lectures will be supplemented by Professor Hershel Farkas (Hebrew University, Jerusalem) who will lecture on Riemann's Theta Functions on two of the afternoons, and by Professor Roger Baker (Brigham Young University) who will give the two remaining afternoon lectures at the Workshop.

The Conference on Quadratic Forms, Sums of Squares, Theta Functions and Integral Lattices will be from Wednesday, March 11 to Sunday, March 15.

The Workshop and Conference are part of a year long Program in Algebra, Number Theory and Combinatorics.
