Given the continuing strike of the senior academic staff and temporary suspension of lectures, classes and all other forms of the frontal eductation, this weblog changes itself into a Web-based Research Project for Masters Students at the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science, Weizmann Institute of Science.

Participation in the project is advised to first and second year students, yet Ph. D. students are also encouraged to attend.

Participants in the project are assumed to read weekly portions of research texts (monographs and articlkes)  regularly published on these pages.

There is a weekly meeting between the participants and the head of the project (S.Y.) every Thursday between 9:00 and 11:00. During this meeting the participants receive explanations and extended comments on especially difficult instances of the text and answers to their questions. Meetings are open to everybody.

For disambiguation purposes it should be understood that:

  1. This research project is in no way related to the course “Analytic and Geometric Theory of Ordinary Differential Equations”, announced earlier. The regular course will start with the end of the strike.
  2. The students will not receive credit points for participation in the project: its purpose is to familiarize the prospective students with an ongoing research.

Don’t hesitate to ask any questions if you feel confused by this disambiguation 😉
