Ken Ono to give the American Mathematical Society's 2012 Erdos Memorial Lecture.
Published: 02/21/2011
Ken Ono, Asa Griggs Candler Professor of Mathematics, has been selected to give the American Mathematical Society's 2012 Erdos Memorial Lecture. The lecture is an annual invited address made possible by a fund created by Andrew Beal, a Dallas banker and mathematical enthusiast. It is named for the mathematician Paul Erdös. The Beal Prize Fund ($100,000) is being held by the AMS until it is awarded for a correct solution to the Beal Conjecture. In the meantime, the interest from this fund is used to support the Erdös Memorial Lecture. The Erdos Lectures are one the most prestigious endowed invited addresses hosted by the American Mathematical Society. Previous speakers include Ron Graham, John Conway, Hillel Furstenberg, Avi Wigderson, Bernd Sturmfels, Persi Diaconis, Bela Bollobas, Andrew Granville, W. Timothy Gowers and Jeffrey C. Lagarias.

The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science is pleased to host the 3rd edition of The Georgia Scientific Computing (GSC) Symposium on Saturday, February 12, 2011. The purpose of the GSC Symposium is to provide an opportunity for professors, postdocs, and graduate students in the Atlanta area to meet in an informal setting, to exchange ideas, and to highlight local scientific computing research. However, it is open to the whole research community.

The symposium will include seven invited talks, a poster session, and substantial time for interaction among the participants. The invited speakers include:

- Alfio Quarteroni, École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Politecnico di Milano
- Jim Nagy, Emory University
- Allen Tannenbaum, Georgia Institute of Technology
- George Biros, Georgia Institute of Technology
- Hao-min Zhou, Georgia Institute of Technology
- Vladimir Bondarenko, Georgia State University
- Thiab Taha, University of Georgia
