Research Tutorial Groups (RTGs)

“Research Tutorial Groups” introduce graduate students to mathematical research at the end of the first year and beginning of the second year, typically well in advance of formal dissertation research. In the spring of the first year, students listen to short lecture series on topics of current interest (usually three or four series of three or four lectures, one hour per week). In the following fall, students choose one of the topics and work on a research problem with the sponsoring faculty member and a small group of fellow students. The spring lecture series is one credit hour while the fall research group is three credit hours.

Format change

Up to academic year 2002-2003, RTG's ran on a Fall–Spring cycle. Starting with calendar year 2004, they run on a Spring–Fall cycle. Thus there were no RTGs in Fall 2003.
