Welcome to the Geometry/Topology RTG Website!

The RTG is a vertically integrated program to
enhance the training of undergraduates, graduate students, and postdocs at
the University of Texas and, through this website, well beyond. We exemplify
and promote a unified perspective on geometry and topology. The mathematics
on this website includes a potent mix of low-dimensional topology, algebraic
geometry, differential geometry, global linear and nonlinear analysis,
representation theory, geometric group theory, and homotopy theory. Often
concepts and inspiration from theoretical physics play a role as well. The
RTG training activities are designed to promote this view of geometry and
topology and, more broadly, of mathematics and science to young
mathematicians. An open attitude towards ideas from all directions is
essential for success with the challenges facing mathematics and science
today. I particularly recommend our growing video collection of lecture
series on current topics in geometry and topology. -Dan Freed
