Courses and instructors
There were five courses with particulars as follows:
- Complex differential geometry, dealing with connections and curvature on vector bundles culminating in the Kodaira embedding theorem. Vamsi Pingali (IISc Bangalore) was the instructor. The course was of 9 hour du ration (6 X 1.5 hrs).
- Riemann surfaces, dealing with complex analytic techniques and Fenchel Nielsen co-ordinates on Riemann surfaces, culminating in the Riemann Roch theorem. Subhojoy Gupta (IISc Bangalore) was the instructor. The course was of 9 hour duration (6 X 1.5 hrs).
- Gauge theory and Yang Mills, dealing with connections and curvature on principal bundles culminating in the Yang-Mills functionsl and ADS connections. Sushmita Venugopalan (IMSc Chennai) was the instructor.The course was of 6 hour duration (4 X 1.5 hrs).
- Geodesic flow, dealing with hyperbolic dynamics and geodesic flow. Kingshook Biswas (ISI Kolkata) was the instructor. The course was of 6 hour duration (4 X 1.5 hrs).
- h-principle, dealing with the techniques evolved by Gromov and Eliashberg to solve the Smale-Hirsch immersion theorem. Dishant Pancholi (IMSc Chennai) was the instructor. The course was of 6 hour duration (4 X 1.5 hrs).
- All courses were pitched at a beginning 2nd year PhD level at standard Indian research institutes. Students had been selected so that they have the background to absorb such advanced material. As a consequence students systematically attended all lectures and were able to participate meaningfully. We feel that the program fulfilled what we had aimed at, viz. providing beginning PhD students in geometry a broad sampler of advanced topics in which they can do further study.
Timetable
4 classes of 1.5 hr duration from 9:30-11, 11:30-1; 2-3:30; 4-5:30 were held every day from Monday-Saturday as per the following particulars:
