MAA logo

The next national meeting of the Mathematical Association of America (MAA)* and The American Mathematical Society (AMS)* will be held in San Francisco! Mathematicians will return to the Bay Area after last meeting there in 1995! Nearly 6,000 people attended the meeting in 2009, and 2010 promises to be even larger and another incredible meeting experience for mathematicians and exhibitors from all over! *The AMS and MAA are joined at this meeting by the Association for Symbolic Logic, the Association for Women in Mathematics, the National Association for Mathematicians, and the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics.

Count on a few Joint Mathematics mainstays: a huge Exhibit Hall filled with some of the leading scientific publishers, well-known computer hardware and software manufacturers, well-known health and lifestyle companies, various companies offering mathematics enrichment products, and various professional organizations; a large and comprehensive Scientific Program geared toward mathematicians of all ages and levels of expertise; the Mathematical Art Exhibition that includes works by artists in various media; the Graduate School Fair for undergraduate students; Poster Sessions for young mathematicians and undergraduate students; opportunities for employment at the Mathematical Sciences Employment Center; Prize and Award Ceremonies; the first national Who Wants to Be a Mathematician game for local high school students; and endless networking and social events.

Holtz to Speak on Zonotopal Algebra, Analysis, and Combinatorics

Olga Holtz pictureOlga Holtz, University of California Berkeley, will deliver an AMS Invited Address on Friday January 15, 2010, 10:05 a.m. - 10:55 a.m.. She will speak on Zonotopal Algebra, Analysis, and Combinatorics. This lecture will be held in the Main Lecture Room, 2nd Floor, Moscone Center West.

Olga Holtz grew up in Chelyabinsk, Russia. She received her Diploma in Applied Mathematics from Southern Ural State University in 1995 and her PhD in Mathematics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2000.  After holding positions at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the Technische Universität Berlin, and at the University of California at Berkeley, she now holds joint appointments at Berkeley and at TU Berlin. Holtz received the Sofja Kovalevskaja award in 2006 and the European Mathematical Society Prize in 2008.

Blum to Speak on The Real Computation Controversy

lenore blum picLenore Blum, Carnegie Mellon University, will deliver a MAA Invited Address on Wednesday January 13, 2010, 2:15 p.m. - 3:05 p.m. She will speak on The real computation controversy: Is it real? This lecture will be held in the Main Lecture Room, 2nd Floor, Moscone Center West.

Lenore Blum is Distinguished Career Professor of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon. She received her PhD in mathematics from MIT in 1968 (the year in which Princeton first allowed women into their graduate program). Her research, from her early work in model theory and differential fields (logic and algebra) to her more recent work in developing a theory of computation and complexity over the real numbers (mathematics and computer science), has focused on merging seemingly unrelated areas.

Wilkinson to Speak on Chaos and Symmetry

wilkinson picAmie Wilkinson, Northwestern University, will deliver an AMS Invited Address on Wednesday January 13, 2010, 10:05 a.m. - 10:55 a.m. She will speak on Chaos and symmetry in partially hyperbolic systems. This lecture will be held in the Main Lecture Room, 2nd Floor, Moscone Center West.

Amie Wilkinson received her PhD from the University of California at Berkeley in 1995. After a post-doc at Harvard, she went to Northwestern University, where she is now Professor of Mathematics. Her research interests include ergodic theory, smooth dynamical systems, and foliations. As an indication of her success in these fields, we note that she will be one of the invited speakers in the session on dynamical systems at the 2010 International Congress of Mathematics in Hyderabad, India.

Bhargava to Speak on Factorial Function, Integer-valued Polynomials, and p-adic Calculus

manjul picManjul Bhargava, Princeton University, will deliver a MAA Invited Address on Wednesday January 13, 2010, 3:20 p.m. - 4:10 p.m..He will speak on The factorial function, integer-valued polynomials, and $p$-adic calculus. This lecture will be held in the Main Lecture Room, 2nd Floor, Moscone Center West.

Manjul Bhargava received his A.B. degree from Harvard University and a Ph.D. from Princeton University in 2001.  After spending a year each at Harvard and the Institute for Advanced Study (on a Clay Research Fellowship), he joined the Princeton faculty as Professor of Mathematics in 2003. Bhargava's research interests include algebraic number theory, representation theory, and combinatorics, though he also spends much of his time on algebraic geometry, linguistics, mathematics education, and Indian classical music.  A versatile speaker, he has given numerous seminars, colloquia, invited addresses, and public lectures at colleges and universities across North America and Europe.

Kenyon to Speak on Laplacians on Vector Bundles on Graphs

Richard Kenyon pictureRichard W. Kenyon, Brown University, will deliver an AMS Invited Address on Thursday January 14, 2010, 2:15 p.m. - 3:05 p.m. He will speak on Laplacians on vector bundles on graphs. This lecture will be held in the Main Lecture Room, 2nd Floor, Moscone Center West.

Richard W. Kenyon is Professor of Mathematics at Brown University. He received his PhD in 1990 at Princeton University under the direction of William Thurston. Kenyon held postdoctoral positions at the Institut des Hautes Etudes Scientifiques and then a position at CNRS in Grenoble, Lyon, and Paris. In 2004 he held a Canada Research Chair at the University of British Columbia. He won a CNRS bronze medal in 1999, the Rollo Davidson prize in 2001, and the Loeve prize in probability in 2007. His research interests are in statistical mechanics, combinatorics, and discrete geometry.

Van Brummelen to Speak on Trigonometry, Ancient Astronomy, and the Birth of Applied Mathematics

Van Brummelen pictureGlen Van Brummelen, Quest University, will deliver a MAA Invited Address on Thursday January 14, 2010, 9:00 a.m. - 9:50 a.m. He will speak on Reasonable effectiveness: Trigonometry, ancient astronomy, and the birth of applied mathematics.This lecture will be held in the Main Lecture Room, 2nd Floor, Moscone Center West.

Glen Van Brummelen is a historian of ancient and medieval mathematics and astronomy.The Mathematics of the Heavens and the Earth is the first book of its kind in a century, spanning four cultures and illustrating the interaction between mathematics and its early client disciplines astronomy and geography. His research focuses on the interactions between theory and practice among the earliest practitioners of numerical and applied mathematics, particularly those who implemented Ptolemaic models of the heavenly bodies. He is past president of the Canadian Society for History and Philosophy of Mathematics. Finally, he is coordinator of mathematics and a founding faculty member at Quest University, the first private secular liberal arts college in Canada.
