The University of Virginia will host the Spring Southeastern Sectional Meeting of the American Mathematical Society on March 13-15, 2020.
The seventh annual Mid-Atlantic Algebra, Geometry, and Combinatorics (MAAGC) workshop will be held at UVA in conjunction with the AMS meeting.
Jiayi Wang received an “Outstanding Poster” award at the MAA Undergraduate Poster Session at the JMM 2020 in Denver, Colorado, for the work “Balance between the coherence of the vorticity direction and the vorticity magnitude in the fractional Navier-Stokes equations” (advisor Z. Grujic). A companion paper is at the arXiv
Ken Ono was elected Chair of the Mathematics Section of American Academy of Arts and Sciences
In a recent Popular mechanics article UVa faculty member Ken Ono was honored along with co-authors Michael Griffin, Larry Rolen, and Don Zagier for their work on a problem directly related to the Riemann Hypothesis. UVa graduate and McShane Prize winner Andrew Booker was cited along with Andrew Sutherland for work leading to the long-sought integer solutions to $x^3 + y^3 + z^3 = 33$ and $x^3 + y^3 + z^3 = 42$. Booker will be the speaker at the Math Major dinner on April 16, 2020.
The University of Virginia will host the 2020 Spring Southeastern Sectional Meeting of the American Mathematical Society on March 13-15, 2020.
The three planary lectures will be given by Laura Ann Miller, Betsy Stovall, and Yusu Wang. We will also host the Einstein Lecture, given by Moon Duchin, which will be followed by a buffet dinner, and 35 special sessions spanning many different topics. There will also be a Career Development and Job Search Workshop for graduate student and the panel “Building diverse math communities”.View details »
