CSUF Hosts American Mathematical Society Meeting
Oct. 14, 2015
Cal State Fullerton mathematics faculty members and students are presenting 24 talks at the American Mathematical Society's Western Sectional Meeting Oct. 24-25 on campus.
It's the first time the University has hosted the research meeting, open to the public and expected to draw more than 400 mathematicians from around the world.
The meeting will feature special sessions with more than 350 talks, as well as four invited lectures moderated by CSUF math professors, said meeting planner Zair Ibragimov, associate professor of mathematics. His department colleagues assisted, organizing 12 of the special sessions.
"It's an honor for Cal State Fullerton to host this meeting, which will provide a great venue for the exchange of ideas, the latest developments in mathematics and the opportunity to meet colleagues from other universities," said Ibragimov. "It's especially important for students as they get the opportunity to meet their peers and top mathematicians, and get valuable feedback on their own work."
The meeting focuses on mathematics research, including preparing future math teachers and mathematics community outreach. Math majors Isabel Serrano, Philip Ramirez and Melissa Riddle are among presenters. For faculty presentations, visit online.
Registration is $57 for AMS members, $80 for nonmembers and $5 for students. To register and for a complete program schedule, visit the American Mathematical Society website.
