Upcoming Conferences

We are Texas

Simons Conference on Random Graph Processes
May 9-12, 2016, UT Austin.

This workshop, funded by the Simons Foundation, is the third in a series of meetings organized at UT Austin on related topics, alternating yearly in an emphasis on mathematics one year, and on network applications the next. The 2016 workshop will again be on the mathematics of stochastic processes and graphs, this time focusing on the studies of processes in, and on, large graphs. Our aim is to bring together a diverse set of eminent researchers from various communities in this broad subject, to give a global picture which will hopefully lead to interactions and cross-fertilization.

Alessio Figalli

Alessio Figalli will receive the 2016 Edith and Peter O'Donnell Award for Science.

Decemeber 11 , 2015

The Acadamy of Medicine, Engineering and Science of Texas has announced that Alessio Figalli is the recipient of the 2016 Edith and Peter O'Donnell Award for Science.

Quoting from the award page: "Dr. Figalli's research embraces several areas of mathematics, including partial differential equations, calculus of variations and geometric measure theory. These areas have applications to physics, biology, and economics. For instance, one of Dr. Figalli’s main focuses of research is the “optimal transport problem,” which states: given a distribution of mass, find the most efficient way to transport it from one place to another. This problem has important applications in economics, however, more recently, this problem has found new unexpected applications to other areas of mathematics, as well as biology and meteorology."
