Mathematics & Statistics Seminars
Northern Arizona University

Week of April 10th

There will be no colloquium this week, Tuesday April 11th. We do have a busy schedule of upcoming talks:

  • April 18th Phillip Doi NAU M.S. Thesis
  • Honors Week, Dr. Luis David Garcia Puente, Sam Houston State University:
    • Thursday, April 27th at 12:45 Colloquium
    • Thursday, April 27th at 4:00 Student talk, awards, reception
    • Friday, April 28th at 4:00 Interdisciplinary talk
  • May 2nd Zachary Parker NAU M.S. Thesis

Additionally, in the coming weeks we expect to schedule at least two one-hour tenure-track candidate talks, and several more shorter talks for the lecturer search. It is important that a good showing of faculty be present for each of these candidate talks, including hopefully a few graduate students too.
