- Summer Program
The AGANT (Algebraic Geometry, Algebra and Number Theory) Research and Training Group at the University of Georgia Mathematics Department coordinates a number of programs and activities at a variety of levels, from high school students to postdoctoral fellows.
We gratefully acknowledge funding support from the National Science Foundation Research and Training Group grant DMS-1344994 ($2,000,000 over 5 years). We are also grateful for the financial support of the Office of the Vice-President for Research, of the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences, and of the Graduate School.
