About CTNT 2020 Online

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, June 8th to Sunday, June 14th, 2020. The conference will feature research talks on number theory.

NOTE: due to the ongoing pandemic, the CTNT program in 2020 will be entirely online. We will do our best to include as many social opportunities as possible via online meetings.

During the day, the summer school will have lectures aimed at undergraduate and graduate students. During the summer school and conference, there will be social video-conferencing meetings, as well as opportunities to work in groups on number theory projects. The conference to follow the workshop will feature international experts on elliptic curves, modular forms, and related topics.

The summer school and conference received support from the National Science Foundation, the National Security Agency, UConn CLAS, the Journal of Number Theory (Elsevier), and the UConn Department of Mathematics. Please note that only students from schools in North America are eligible for funding.
