# Welcome to the RTG at UIC

We are very excited to have an RTG program in algebraic geometry and related fields, including number theory, complex dynamics, model theory and logic. You can find information related to RTG activities on this page.

### Members of the Group:

### Current and upcoming events this semester:

- D-modules minicourse (Nick Switala, Fall 2016)
- Model Theory Seminar (David Marker and James Frietag, Fall 2016)
- Undergraduate Mathematics Symposium 2016 (Kevin Tucker and David Dumas, October 15, 2016)
- Higgs Bundles graduate student workshop (Laura Schaposnik, Oct 21-23, 2016)
- Homological Conjectures in Commutative Algebra graduate student workshop (Kevin Tucker and Chris Skalit, November 18-20, 2016)

### Research and learning opportunities for:

- High school students
- Undergraduate students. In the Summer of 2016, we will also be hosting a Commutative Algebra REU at UIC.
- Graduate students. You can find a list of current and former graduate students here.
- Postdocs. You can find a list of current and former postdocs here.
