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.
Chris Chung will defend the Ph.D. thesis on Friday, May 29. The title is
“Quantum Covering Groups and Quantum Symmetric Pairs”.
Everyone is invited to attend.
The Department of Mathematics hosted an online diploma ceremony on May 16.
The Mathematics Department is pleased to announce the following prize winners for the 2019-2020 year:
