UConn Cluster Algebra Spring School:

The principal objective of our program is to involve graduate students in cutting-edge mathematics research on cluster algebras. We are mainly interested in graduate students whose research is in the area of cluster algebras and related topics. Contact: Ralf Schiffler

The school will take place at the University of Connecticut on Monday May 15 to Friday May 19, 2017. The school is intended for graduate students with research interest in cluster algebras. Students will attend the four short courses which are listed below. These courses are on recent developments in the area. Each course is divided into 5 lectures which are scheduled for the mornings and early afternoons. In the late afternoons and evenings, students will work in groups on problem sets from these courses.

  • Gordana Todorov (Northeastern University)
    Continuous cluster categories
  • Charles Paquette (University of Connecticut)
    Cluster categories
  • Kyungyong Lee (University of Nebraska)
    Upper cluster algebras, maximal green sequences, and greedy bases
  • Ralf Schiffler (University of Connecticut)
    Cluster algebras of surface type and continued fractions

Support includes a room in our modern university housing facilities (double occupancy), breakfast, lunch and travel support.

Women and minority students are particularly encouraged to apply.

To apply for the school candidates should submit the following documents to

  • a CV with information about the candidates research area
  • a brief statement on how the school would benefit the candidate's research.
Moreover the candidate's advisor should submit a supporting letter directly in
