Simon Marais Lectureship: Public Lecture
Thursday April 27 2017, 5:45pm to 7pm, in the Messel Theatre.
Professor Amie Wilkinson, from the University of Chicago, will present a lecture entitled "The mathematics of déjà vu". An abstract of Professor Wilkinson's lecture is available on our Seminars and Conferences page.
From 27 June to 1 July 2017 at the University of Sydney.
This workshop will bring together experts and emerging researchers to report on recent results and explore future directions in computational and algorithmic topology. There will be a focus on problems in low-dimensional geometry and topology, and on the development of practical algorithms and their implementation. We plan to have introductory talks on the first two days of the workshop, followed by research talks on the remaining three days. For more information, see the conference web-page. http://www.maths.usyd.edu.au/u/tillmann/cats2017/.
Geordie Williamson awarded New Horizons in Mathematics Prize
Professor Geordie Williamson has been awarded a New Horizons in Mathematics Prize for his pioneering work in geometric representation theory, including the development of Hodge theory for Soergel bimodules and the proof of the Kazhdan–Lusztig conjectures for general Coxeter groups.
Gus Lehrer awarded Szekeres Medal
Professor Gus Lehrer is one of two winners of the George Szekeres Medal for 2016. The medal is awarded for an outstanding contribution to the mathematical sciences in the 15 years prior to the year of the award.
The Simons Foundation and the Magma Group have concluded an agreement that will make the Magma computational algebra system much more widely available in the US. See the School's news page for more information.
