Coming Lecture

On Thursday, March 23, our 2017 Distinguished Lecturer will be Doron Zeilberger from Rutgers University.

About the Lecture

Since 2005, the Mathematics Department holds an annual Distinguished Lecture. The lecture is a cornerstone in Georgia Southern's mission of diffusion of knowledge in South East Georgia. It enables those with an interest in the subject to see the best mathematicians share the pleasures and beauty of mathematics. The format of the lecture lets a distinguished mathematician addresses an audience of undergraduates and non experts to show the wide scope of the subject.
Besides the Distinguished Lecture, the department also holds regular CLEC lectures to highlight the interaction of mathematics with other fields.
The public lectures are followed by a more specialized colloquium aimed at mathematicians from the area.
Past lecturers include world renown scholars in mathematics and tangential domains.
