The departments of mathematics at UCLA, UC Irvine and Caltech were jointly awarded a major Research Training Group (RTG) grant in mathematical logic by the National Science Foundation. UCLA Mathematics will receive $1.1 million of the $2 million grant over five years. As part of the NSF initiative to enhance the mathematical sciences workforce in the 21st century, the grant will fund numerous programs including summer schools for undergraduate and graduate students; graduate and postdoctoral fellowships; community college, high school, and middle school enrichment programs; and other initiatives designed to improve training and increase the visibility of mathematical logic and mathematics as a whole. UCLA Mathematics Professor Itay Neeman directs the project along with co-principal investigators Matthew Foreman at UC Irvine and Alexander Kechris at Caltech.
