## CURE: Collaborative Undergraduate Research Experience |

## Administrative Information
Application Deadline: June 2, 2017 |
## Program DescriptionCURE is an intense 8-week summer research program primarily aimed at mathematics majors. Each summer, the program involves about 4 undergraduate students, one faculty research advisor (Prof. Kemp in 2017) and one graduate student research mentor (Eric Lybrand in 2017). The goals of the program are to: - explore a topic in research-level mathematics,
- promote collaborative work in the next generation of mathematicians,
- encourage graduate study in mathematics, and
- promote diversity in mathematics.
Participants will be paid a stipend of $4,000 USD. They will be expected to be working (together as a group) with their mentors on weekdays during the program.
## 2016 Project DescriptionThe topic of this year's CURE project is ## Application ProcedureInterested students should have taken (the equivalent of) UCSD's Math 180A (probability theory); other courses that are useful but perhaps not essential to have taken are Math 140AB (real analysis),
Math 154 or Math 184 (combinatorics), and Math 102A/103 (linear algebra). Some programming experience is also a great benefit. - A current cv.
- An up-to-date academic transcript (not necessary if you are a UCSD student).
- A list and brief description of all upper-division mathematics courses you have taken, in addition to any courses or training in related computational fields (e.g. computer science and computer engineering, physics).
- A one page sample of mathematical writing. This can be on a topic of mathematics research you have worked on in the past, or it can be an exposition of a favorite theorem you've learned in (or out of) your course work. The goal is to demonstrate your enthusiasm for, and ability to communicate, rigorous mathematical ideas.
These materials will be evaluated immediately following the application deadline, and successful applicants will be notified by June 9, 2017. |
