This will be an introductory summer school on "J-Holomrphic Curves and Gromov-Witten Invariants".We hope to cover the foundations of this subject by following the book "J-Holomorphic Curves and Symplectic Topology" by Dusa McDuff and Dietmar Salamon. Quite a few young mathematicians from India have agreed to give lecturesin this summer school. Those who are interested in Differential Geometry, Differential Topology, Complex Analysis and (Complex) Algebraic Geometry are particularly encouraged to participate in this programme. The details of this summer school can be found on this website http://www.niser.ac.in/niser_jhol/
Most Indian Universities however do not have a rigorous study on probability. The aim of this school is to give a comprehensive training to students in a undergraduate/PhD programme onprobability and stochastic processes. Also to give them a chance to interact with researchers in these topics.
We propose to run three courses – 1) Basic probability theory, 2) Measure free Markov chain, 3)Modules of linear algebra and real analysis. There will be around 40 hours of lectures includingtutorials per topic over a 4 weeks period. In addition, over two weekends we plan to invite activeresearchers in probability to present introductory lectures on a research topic and interact withstudents.

In the early days of our learning , most of our knowledge and practice of Integration is based on the Fundamental Theorem of Integral Calculus (FTIC). But the ideas and the intuition of it changes drastically as one tries to move onto higher dimensions or onto more "general sets", leading to new intuition, new Mathematics, entangling analysis with topology. In even more abstract setting, a rephrasing of FTIC leads to new theories of Integration with its "associated FTIC" .
