University of Utah to Host Mathematics Meeting

October 8, 2002 — The University of Utah will host the Fall Western Section Meeting of the American Mathematical Society Oct. 26-27, 2002. Over 100 mathematicians from 25 states and two nations in addition to the United States will gather at the university to present results of their research.

Among these presentations will be five from members of the university’s Department of Mathematics: three by faculty members and two by graduate students. In addition, eight members of the Department of Mathematics faculty have organized sessions on five areas of research.

Four invited addresses, covering a broad spectrum of pure and applied mathematics, will be given at the meeting, two on each day. The topics of the addresses range from geometry and topology to harmonic analysis and partial differential equations as well as dynamical systems. Each invited address is in the John Widstoe Building, room 335.
