ATM Schools: Advanced Linear Algebra (2023), Bhaskaracharya Pratishthana, Pune, Application Deadline: October 21, 2023

The Advanced Training in Mathematics Schools (ATM Schools) were launched by the National Board for Higher Mathematics (NBHM) in May 2004. The purpose of these schools is to provide training in core subjects in Mathematics to Ph.D. students, young researchers and teachers. The emphasis in these schools is on learning mathematics by doing it. IIT Bombay and TIFR have jointly established the National Centre for Mathematics (NCM) in 2011. The instructional schools and workshops which were earlier planned by an NBHM committee on ATM Schools are now being organized under the supervision of the Apex Committee of the NCM.

Dates: 27 Nov 2023 to 9 Dec 2023
