Description This is an EMA (Ecole Mathematique Africaine) School of CIMPA.

This hybrid School is nominally based at the ICTP-East African Institute for Fundamental Research [EAIFR] in Kigali, Rwanda; it will offer students concrete and effective mathematical tools from algebra, group theory and geometry that can be applied to any scientific field.

Consisting of 8 working days 12-15 August and 17-20 August, with one rest day the  2+2 courses shall be running concurrently. Lectures will be given remotely by video link.

Description of Courses:

WEEK 1 [12-15 August] R. K. Ramakrishna: Class numbers of number rings A. Taribi: Group representation theory and combinatorics

WEEK 2 [17-20 August]: C. Kurujyibwami / B. Szendroi: Lie algebras K. Wendland: Modular forms
