The AMS Department currently has the following openings

Math/Stat Moments

Martin Gardner (1914-2010)

Martin Gardner (1914 - 2010)

No Mathematical Moments would be complete without a discussion about Martin Gardner.  His Scientific American "Mathematical Games" columns, which ran from 1956 to 1981, are probably responsible for many of us being mathematicians.  Last year was his centennial year, so it is only appropriate to include some links to his works.


1. The Top Ten Martin Gardner Scientific American Articles

2. Can You Solve a Puzzle Unsolved Since 1996?

3. Articles Alluded to in "Let the Games Continue"

4. Three Puzzles from Martin Gardner (1914-2010)

Need more Hexaflexagon discussions?  Check out the latest e-book available here

Thanks for everything Martin!

Spotlight on AMS

Congratulations to Carson Kent

Carson Kent is a recent recipient of a 2015 National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship (GRF) for his research proposal on Quantum Error Correction in the field of Computational and Mathematical Engineering.  The GRF provides 3 years of support for the graduate education of individuals who have demonstrated their potential for significant achievements in science and engineering.

Carson is joined by 4 other outstanding Mines students, Ashley Bucsek in Mechanical Engineering, Katerina Gonzales in Geophysical Engineering, Kimberly Slinski in Hydrologic Science & Engineering, and Bradley Wilson in Geophysical Engineering.

Congratulations Carson on an excellent proposal and good luck on your future research!
