Published: 09/18/2014
Ken Ono, the Asa Griggs Candler Professor of Mathematics, will be giving an MAA invited plenary address at the Joint Mathematics Meeting (JMM) this January in San Antonio, Texas. The JMM, hosted by the American Mathematical Society (AMS) and the Mathematical Association of America (MAA), is the largest gathering of mathematicians in the United States with several thousand participants. Ken will be speaking about his joint work with Michael Griffin and Ole Warnaar on their framework of Rogers-Ramanujan identities, research which has been selected as one of the “Top Science Stories of 2014” by Discover magazine. Ken will be profiled in the end-of-the-year issue of Discover magazine. This lecture will be Professor Ono’s second invited address at the JMM. In 2009 he delivered the AMS plenary invited address.
