The Polymath Jr program is an online research program for undergraduates. The program consists of projects in a wide variety of mathematical fields. Each project is run by a professor who is an expert on that field, with PhD students and postdocs as additional mentors. In each project, we work towards proving a new result and publishing these in a paper. A lot more information can be found on our website (https://geometrynyc.wixsite.com/polymathreu).

The participants do not receive funding, but can decide the capacity in which they wish to participate (we do fund some participant travel to present research results at conferences). You are welcome to choose what you want to get out of the program and spend an amount of time that fits that: from intense research work towards making mathematical breakthroughs, to just getting a first impression of what math research looks like.

The only eligibility criteria is experience with proof writing. Preferably, participating in a college course that requires writing your own proofs. A letter from a math professor is also required in the application.

Women and students from underrepresented minorities are highly encouraged to apply.

We encourage participants to apply in March, after having some idea of whether they were accepted to a standard program.

In your application, please make sure to fill out the year when you expect to receive your undergraduate degree (this is found in the AMS coversheet).

For any questions or comment, you are welcome to write to Adam Sheffer at adamsh@gmail.com
