Notice on the Application for the 2023 Yau Tsinghua Summer Mathcamp for International Secondary School Students


This notice is for international students ONLY

The YAU Mathematical Sciences Center (YMSC) and the department of Mathematical Sciences of Tsinghua University are intended to hold the 2023 Yau Tsinghua Mathcamp (hereinafter referred to as the Mathcamp) for Secondary School Students from July 11 to August 18, 2023.

The Mathcamp is designed for students who love mathematics, are passionate about this subject, and have some basic competency in this respect. This event aims to enable students to learn about mathematics of modern times and have access to modern mathematical research. These students with potential are expected to devote themselves to mathematical research in the future through the enlightenment by this summer camp so that our goal of training a new generation of young mathematical research talents can be achieved.

We will offer various mathematical courses, including linear algebra, algebraic combinatorics, analysis and topology and so on. Those courses cover essential tools and applications for modern scientific research. Some courses are also combined with special research. There will be a mini symposium in the last few days of the Mathcamp. Students are encouraged to deliver special lectures and publish their research results. During the Mathcamp, TA sessions will be arranged in the afternoon. Teaching assistants will lead students in discussing about and doing exercises or talking about the homework assignments or their research projects. Additionally, we plan to invite world-class researchers to give an academic lecture at the Mathcamp so that students can understand the direction and results of modern scientific research.
