News and Information:
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.
