Errors with Math Forum Discussions
Over the weekend, our discussion software began to struggle with recurring errors that we have failed to resolve ourselves. Many thousands of messages -- including the Forum's own internal staff correspondence -- remain back-logged in limbo.
Thank you for your patience as we resolve this problem.

Summer Program for Women in Mathematics
The Summer Program for Women in Mathematics is entering its thirteenth year of educating mathematically talented undergraduate women who are completing their junior year and may be contemplating graduate study in mathematical sciences.
Now through March 1, 2007, this George Washington University program is accepting applications for its five-week intensive program, June 30 to August 4, 2007.
Sixteen women will be selected. Each will receive a travel allowance, campus room and board, and a stipend of $1,500. Due to restrictions of the funding agency, only US citizens or permanent residents of the US can be supported.
