Fong Symposium 2005

San Francisco State University Department of Mathematics

 

Professor Efim Zelmanov of University of California San Diego will be our Pamela Fong Symposium 2005 speaker.  The symposium will take place (tentatively) during the week of May 9-13, 2005.

In 1994 Prof. Zelmanov was awarded Fields Medal, often perceived as Nobel prize for mathematicians.

Efim Zelmanov is truly an outstanding speaker. E. Robertson writes - "His lectures were beautifully constructed, models of clarity, showing what had been achieved and presenting many glimpses of possible directions for future research. Filled with humour, they were all delivered with Zelmanov's infectious twinkle in his eyes."

Mathematics Department at San Francisco State University plans to hold the Fong Symposium on a yearly basis. This event will have a distinguished mathematician visit SFSU for 2-3 days who will deliver two talks, usually on Thursdays and Fridays - one for general audience and the other a colloquium talk.

We hope the Fong Symposium 2005 will draw mathematicians from several institutions in the Bay Area.
