Lia Leon Margolin, Ph.D., associate professor and chair of the Department of Mathematics, presented the talk Antisymmetrization of The Wave Functions Consisting of Spin-Isospin and Hyperspherical Parts at the 16th International Conference on Meson-Nucleon Physics and the Structure of the Nucleon (MENU 2023). The conference was held on October 16-20, 2023, by the Institute for Nuclear Physics at the Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz, Germany.
Each month the Mathematics Department offers a math prize problem – a mathematical brain teaser – with a first prize of $25, a second prize of $15, and, of course, bragging rights. These problems do not require advanced knowledge of mathematics, just a curious mind and a willingness to slug it out with the problem.
Every year, the Mathematics department holds a College-wide π-Day contest. Students, faculty, and staff are invited to submit an original sentence, paragraph, poem, or short story that uses the digits of π in order (π ≈ 3.1415926..).
