The University of Maine Department of Mathematics and Statistics will host number theorists from New England, Québec and beyond to present and discuss their research during the 2013 Maine-Québec Number Theory Conference Oct. 5–6.
Approximately 60 participants are expected to attend the event’s 38 scheduled lectures in Neville Hall on campus. Barry Mazur, a Harvard professor and 2013 recipient of the National Medal of Science, will give the plenary lecture at the annual meeting at 8:40 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 6 in 101 Neville.
The conference, which is free and open to the public, provides an opportunity for young mathematicians and graduate students to interact with leading scholars.
This year’s conference will be held in honor of event founders UMaine professor Chip Snyder and Laval University professor Claude Levesque, on the occasion of their retirement.
