CAP, Excellence in Complex Analysis and PDE, is one of the ATLANTIS, MOBILITY PROGRAMS co-funded by FIPSE and by the European Community.
The Fund for the Improvement of Post-secondary Education in the U.S. Department of Education has awarded a four-year, $192,000 grant to the department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Arkansas for graduate students in Mathematics at the masters and doctoral levels to study at a consortium of U.S. and European institutions.
The United States consortium is composed of the University of Arkansas as the lead institution, along with Temple University and the University of Pittsburgh. The European consortium includes the University of Bologna in Italy as the lead institution, the Universite' Paris VII Diderot in France, the Universite de Rennes in France and the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid in Spain. The project will involve 24 U.S. students and 24 European students over four years. The exchange will be for one semester, typically four months, during which time the visiting students will take graduate level mathematics courses at the visiting institutions.
“The exchange program is a first step towards establishing a ‘global curriculum’ in the fields of mathematical analysis and partial differential equations,” said Luca Capogna, project director for participating U.S. universities, which have all committed funds for students participating in the program.
Leadership for the program comes from the J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences.
