An REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) is a summer program funded by the National Science Foundation that allows undergraduate students to participate in research projects in their field of study. It is a valuable opportunity for students to gain hands-on experience and explore potential career paths in their chosen field.

Topology and analysis are both subfields of mathematics, but they have different focuses. Topology is concerned with the properties of geometric objects that are preserved under continuous deformations, while analysis deals with the study of functions, limits, and derivatives. In other words, topology is more concerned with the shape and structure of objects, while analysis is more concerned with the behavior of functions.

The specific projects in a topology/analysis REU will vary, but they will typically involve researching and solving problems related to topology and analysis. This could include topics such as knot theory, differential geometry, or complex analysis. Some programs may also allow students to propose their own research project with the guidance of a mentor.

Participating in a topology/analysis REU can provide several benefits, including gaining hands-on research experience, networking with other students and faculty in the field, and potentially having the opportunity to publish your research. It can also help students develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills, and make them more competitive for graduate school or job opportunities.

Most REU programs require students to have completed at least one year of college-level mathematics, including courses in calculus, linear algebra, and possibly real analysis. Some programs may also have additional requirements, such as a minimum GPA or specific coursework in topology or analysis. It is important to carefully review the requirements for each REU program before applying.
