NU Math Dept Awarded NSF Research Training Grant (RTG)

NSF has awarded a Research Training Grant (RTG) in Dynamics to NU Mathematics.  The Principal Investigator is Bryna Kra, with co-PI's Nir Avni, Aaron Brown, Ilya Khayutin and Jared Wunsch. The proposal aims to increase the strength of research in the field of dynamics, both at Northwestern and across the US, and to address the severely constricted pipeline of talented students entering dynamics. The larger goal is to increase the number of US citizens well-prepared to carry out research in the mathematical sciences, with a focus on increasing the numbers from historically underrepresented groups.
