Mathematical Sciences hosts its 39th annual Spring Lecture Series this week. The principal speaker is Alexander Nagel of the University of Wisconsin who will deliver a series of five lectures on the topic of Multiparameter Geometry and Analysis.
Lectures on the topic by national and international researchers, as well as short talks by doctoral candidates and finishing graduate students will complement the conference.
Also included in the series is a public lecture "Blown Away: What Knot to Do When Sailing,” presented by Sir Randolph Bacon III, cousin-in-law to Colin Adams of Williams College, Thursday, April 10 at 7 p.m. in the Reynolds Center auditorium. A reception will follow.
The lectures are free and open to the public.
“We are very proud to have hosted such eminent speakers for nearly 39 years—this is a wonderful way to bring cutting edge mathematical researchers to Arkansas and showcase our programs here,” Chaim Goodman-Strauss, department chair said.
The conference is being organized by mathematics faculty Phil Harrington and Andy Raich.
Since their inception in 1977, the Spring Lecture Series have grown into an ideal opportunity for specialists and young researchers to meet and exchange ideas about topics at the forefront of modern mathematics.
The Spring Lecture Series is sponsored by the National Science Foundation and the University of Arkansas.
