MathQuest - Math Camp for Girls

Math Quest Camp for Girls

August 19th-22nd, 2019

Math Quest is a mathematics camp for high school girls interested in math and science who have curiosity for exploring new ideas.  With a focus on problem solving, our hands-on activities are led by female mathematicians, statisticians and physicists.  Girls must be entering grade 9 or returning to high school for September 2019.  This residential camp includes all meals and 3 nights in residence (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights) and has programing continuing into the evening.  Day campers are also welcome and attend from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm each day. Snacks and materials are provided including a different CMS math camp t-shirt each summer. A limited number of bursaries are available to assist campers with financial need.

Nonlocal problems in PDEs and geometry

May 20-24, 2019

Prof. Eleonora Cinti (Università di Bologna, Italy) will teach a 5-day mini-course aimed at graduate students and junior researchers at the intersection of Analysis and Geometry.

Dr. Cinti earned her Ph.D in 2010 and since then has worked at the Max Planck Institute in Leipzig, the Weierstrass Institute in Berlin, and various Italian universities (Pavia, Bologna, Torino). Eleonora Cinti's research focuses on nonlocal partial differential equations, geometric measure theory, and calculus of variations.

Schedule

The mini-course will be structured as follows:

  • Lecture 1 (Monday, May 20): Preliminaries: basic facts about the Laplacian and harmonic functions.
  • Lecture 2 (Tuesday, May 21): The fractional Laplacians: motivations and properties.
  • Problem Session (Wednesday, May 22).
  • Lecture 3 (Thursday, May 23): $s$-Harmonic functions and the Caffarelli-Silvestre extension theorem.
  • Lecture 4 (Friday, May 24): Geometry meets PDEs, a nonlocal phase transition model and nonlocal minimal surfaces.

Registration

If you want to attend the mini-course, please email nonlocal19@queensu.ca.

All Girls Math Team Shines on the International Stage

EGMO Team Canada 2019

EGMO Team Canada 2019

May 8th, 2019

The Canadian Mathematical Society is pleased to announce that its second team to compete in the European Girls Mathematical Olympiad (EGMO) has returned from Ukraine, medals in hand. The Canadian EGMO Team earned two Bronze Medals and two Honourable Mentions.

The EGMO competition got started in 2012 when it was first written in Cambridge, UK and has since grown to include more than 50 countries. Participation in the EGMO is by invitation only. Each student competes individually to solve six questions in a competition lasting two days, four and a half hours each day. The Girls Math Team Canada was selected largely based on the results of the 2018 Canadian Open Mathematics Challenge (COMC) written in November, as well as a Team Selection Test that was sent to the top 15 girls from the 2018 COMC.
