This VIGRE program at The University of Iowa is funded by the National Science Foundation. More information on Grants for Vertical Integration of Research and Education in the Mathematical Sciences (VIGRE) can be found hereThis VIGRE project includes the Department of Mathematics at the University of Iowa and the closely allied Program in Applied Mathematical and Computational Sciences (AMCS). The project involves the training of high quality US mathematicians through successful integration of cutting edge research and education in the mathematical sciences.

This project builds on the successes that the Department of Mathematics and AMCS have had in the identification and professional development of highly talented US undergraduate and graduate students, in particular students from underrepresented minority groups. We will bring our successful techniques to a broader range of students in combination with further vertical and horizontal integration of the Department and AMCS.

Parts of this project are in cooperation with a coalition, The Heartland Mathematics Partnership, of the Department of Mathematics and AMCS at the University of Iowa and the departments of mathematics at twelve other area colleges and universities. This will allow the Department and AMCS to increase the number of highly talented and well prepared US students who enter a career in the mathematical sciences.

This VIGRE project includes vertically integrated research groups in areas of research strength in the Department: algebra, numerical analysis, operator theory, partial differential equations, representation theory, and topology. It also includes research experiences for US undergraduates from the University of Iowa and schools in the Partnership. Finally it includes Graduate Traineeships, Postdoctoral Associates, and Workshops.
