Tom Pfaff, a professor in the Mathematics department, recently gave the Randolph Lecture at the Fall, 2011 meeting of the Seaway section of the Mathematical Association of America.
The talk, "Sustain This! Making Math Matter," described examples of how sustainability issues can be covered in...
Emilie Wiesner, a professor in the mathematics department, recently gave two presentations.
The first, "Whittaker Categories for Lie Superalgebras," was presented at an American Mathematical Society conference at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Based on the work in a joint project with Irfan Bagci (University of California-Riverside) and Dina...
Emilie Wiesner and Aaron Weinberg, professors in the mathematics department, recently co-authored a journal article with professors from the College of St. Benedict and Wright State University. The article, Undergraduate Students' Self-Reported Use of Mathematics Textbooks, was published in the journal PRIMUS....
Professor Weinberg recently gave a presentation at the 2011 United States Conference on Teaching Statistics. The talk, entitled "Making Sense of Qualitative Data," described using generative coding and framework-based coding techniques to analyze qualitative research data.
Professor Wiesner recently spoke at the Lie Theory Seminar at the University of California, Riverside. In her talk, entitled "Whittaker Categories and the Virasoro Algebra," she described the historical development of the decomposition of Whittaker modules as well as her own work on the relationship between Whittaker categories and the Virasoro Algebra.
