This is the homepage for the 2018 Summer Mini-Courses, a series of week-long graduate student-run minicourses at UT Austin.

The mini-courses will focus on tools, methods, and ideas that aren't usually covered in prelims but are useful in topics classes/research. The idea is that a week-long seminar will remain engaging, be easier to schedule, and help provide focus. These courses are primarily for graduate students, but all are welcome to participate!

Past courses have included:

  • Review of classes that were taught in previous years.
  • Primers for classes that will be taught next year.
  • Examples of useful computational tools.
  • Introductions to a subject/research area.

These courses are inspired in large part by the ones held at University of Michigan, which are run by Takumi Murayama.
