Abel Prize Winners, 2015

John Nash, Louis Nirenberg - 2015 Abel Prize

Nobel Laureate John Nash Jr., and Louis Nirenberg, were named as co-winners of the 2015 Abel Prize by the Norwegian Academy of Sciences and Letters.  The Academy stated that the two "mathematical giants of the 20th century" made breakthroughs that have become "essential tools for the study of nonlinear partial differential equations."

The 86 year old Nash, perhaps most notably known for the 2001 film, "A Beautiful Mind", is a senior research mathematician at Princeton University.  He won the Nobel Prize for Economics in 1994 for his work in game theory.

The 90 year old Nirenberg is a Professor Emeritus at New York University's Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences and has had "one of the longest and most feted careers in mathematics" with many results named after him and his collaborators.

Spotlight on AMS

Congratulations Majors!

Five of our own attended the Nebraska Conference for Undergraduate Women in Mathematics (NCUWM) this year.  A big congratulations especially goes out to Taylor Chott, Kownoon Her, Sujee Park and Sarah Verros.  Each of these students presented posters at the conference.  Kelsey Kalmbach, a presenter last year, was also able to attend.

The NCUWM is held each year and is open to outstanding undergraduate women mathematicians at all stages in their careers.  The overall goal of the conference is to arm participants with knowledge, self-confidence, and a network of peers to help them become successful mathematicians.

A big way to go to each of these ladies who are well on their way in becoming successful majors and successful mathematicians!
