Math faculty and alumni flock to 2016 JMM

OSU Mathematics faculty, students and alumni will be well represented at the 2016 Joint Mathematics Meetings in Seattle January 6-9. Many of them are presenting at JMM, the largest mathematics meeting in the world. Attendance at this year’s conference is expected to exceed 5,600.

George E. Andrews, Math alumnus

George E. Andrews, Math alumnus

One notable alumnus is George E. Andrews, the Evan Pugh University Professor in Mathematics at Pennsylvania State University. A leading expert in the theory of integer partitions, he will present “A Re nement of the Alladi-Schur Theorem on Saturday, January 9 at 4 pm.

Dr. Andrews has published several monographs and more than 250 research and popular articles on q-series, special functions, combinatorics and applications. His book The Theory of Partitions is the standard reference on the subject of integer partitions. He is a past American Mathematical Society president and a member of the National Academies of Science.

ALUMNI and FRIENDS:  Join us at 2016 JMM for an OSU Math Alumni Reception on January 7!
