The 2018 Sue Geller Undergraduate Lecture will be held Wednesday, January 17, at 6:00pm in Blocker 117 (reception at 6:30). The series is named in honor of Professor Sue Geller in the Department of Mathematics. This year's Lecturer is Judy L. Walker, Aaron Douglas Professor of Mathematics at the University of Nebraska. Everyone is welcome.

Eric Rowell is one of four PIs on a Focused Research Groups $1.3 million ($307,894 locally) grant from the National Science Foundation to investigate the mathematical foundations of topological quantum computation and their applications. The other partner institutions are UC Santa Barbara, Louisiana State University, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. See stories here and here.

The Department of Mathematics is offering a game based calculus course in Spring 2018 (look for Math289 in Howdy). The course is based on the game Variant, by Triseum. This game resulted from an initial $100K seed grant from the TAMU Tier-One program, for which Paulo Lima-Filho and Triseum CEO Andre Thomas served as Principal Investigators.

TAMU Qatar hosts mathematics camp attracting young students from across Qatar. The event was organized by Ahmad El-Guindy, Associate Proferssor of Mathematics at TAMUQ.
