Have a wonderful holiday break! See you next year!
Mathematics of the Season
Given the time of year (and the recent abrupt reminder), it seems only appropriate that we include a few topics on the mathematics involved in this time of year. So, a few links for your reading enjoyment!
- The Wondrous Mathematics of Winter (courtesy of The New Yorker magazine)
- The Mathematics of Christmas (for you non-believers)
- A Mathematical Look at Snow and Avalanches
- Historic Thanksgiving-Hanukkah Overlap Leads to Math and Merchandise
Oh, and just because, who doesn't like Star Trek,
Above all, we hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable holiday season!
Spotlight on AMS
Welcome to Paul Constantine
Join us in welcoming Professor Paul Constantine as the Ben L. Fryrear Assistant Professor. Paul joins us from a postdoc position in the Center for Turbulence Research at Stanford University. His research interests fall in the category of uncertainty quantification, which attempts to formulate and compute measures of confidence for physics and engineering simulations. Paul says he's looking forward to adding Coloradan adventures to his life story and expects a smooth transition as he already drives a Subaru.
Check out the opportunities inside AMS or Ask Us if you have any questions.
