The Palmetto Number Theory Series (PANTS) is a series of number theory
meetings held at colleges and universities in South Carolina, the Palmetto
State as well as neighboring states.
The core members of the PANTS consortium are:
The goal of the PANTS meetings is to provide an opportunity for number
theorists in South Carolina, and more generally, in the Southeast, to hear
about recent research in all areas of number theory,
pure and applied.
PANTS is funded for the 2015-2016 academic year by grants from the
NSF (DMS-1502293) and NSA.
