About CTNT 2018

The Connecticut Summer School in Number Theory (CTNT) is a summer school in number theory for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students, to be followed by a research conference. The summer school will expose undergraduate and graduate students to important ideas in number theory. The research conference following the school is open to participants of all levels, including senior and junior faculty, and interested students. In particular, summer school students’ participation in the research conference will allow them hear about recent developments in the areas of arithmetic geometry and number theory.

This is a seven-day event, consisting of a four-and-a-half-day summer school followed by a two-and-a-half-day conference, from Monday, May 28th to Sunday, June 3rd, 2018, at the University of Connecticut at Storrs. The conference will feature research talks on number theory.

During the day, the summer school will have lectures aimed at undergraduate and graduate students. In the evenings, students will work in groups on problem sets and projects, both computational and theoretical in nature. The conference to follow the workshop will feature international experts on elliptic curves, modular forms, and related topics.

Funding from the National Science Foundation, the National Security Agency, and the Number Theory Foundation will make it possible for undergraduate and graduate students to attend the summer school and conference. Please note that only students from schools in North America are eligible for funding.
