SUMMER SCHOOL 2009
The 7th Annual AMSI Summer School was hosted by The University of Wollongong from 12 January to 6 February 2009. The organising committee, Assoc. Prof. Jacqui Rammage, Ms Sue Denny, Ms Joell Hall and Mr Chris Agnew, presented an excellent program offering six subjects: Linear Analysis, Measure theory, Nano‑mathematics, Groups of Lie Type and their Geometries, Data Analysis and Industrial Mathematics.
The 68 honours and postgraduate students who attended the school thoroughly enjoyed the experience. In addition to the intensive summer school subjects, impromptu late night gatherings were arranged where groups of students attempted to prove somewhat nontrivial problems.
The organising committee also provided a number of social events including rock climbing, barbecues and lawn bowls.
