Colloquium talk. Title: The non-Abelian X-ray transform

Speaker: Gabriel Paternain, Cambridge University

Date and time: Friday, May 28, 2021, at 1:00 pm. We will open the "zoom room" fifteen minutes before the talk begins to allow participants some time to visit with our speaker. We will also stay connected after the talk as needed.

Abstract:
I will describe the mathematics that underpins new experiments
designed to measure magnetic fields inside materials by shooting
them with neutron beams from different directions, like in a CT scan.

The problem is packed with some beautiful geometry and analysis,
where the star of the show is a matrix in SO(3) obtained by solving
a suitable linear ODE along straight lines in the plane.

Title: Al-Kashi’s 1427 Miftah al-Hisab textbook: a 21st century translation and reading.
Abstract:
The book Miftah al-Hisab written in Arabic by al-Kashi in 1427 is considered as the synthesis and culmination of Islamic progress in mathematics at the time. Our recent translation of this work in three volumes; Arithmetic, Geometry, and Algebra published by Birkhauser sheds light on new historical views of the state of Islamic mathematics at the time. We explore the historical and mathematical making of a textbook that has been used for many centuries.

The 2021 Steele Prize for Seminal Contribution to Research is awarded to Murray Gerstenhaber, Professor Emeritus at University of Pennsylvania for “The cohomology structure of an associative ring,” Ann. Math. 78 (1963), 267-288 and “On the deformation of rings and algebras,” Ann. Math. 79 (1964), 59-103. These two remarkable Annals of Mathematics papers established the foundations of algebraic deformation theory, developing a rich structure on the Hochschild cohomology. The papers have had and continue to have a huge impact on many areas of mathematics and physics, including “higher algebra” and deformation quantization. Read more https://buff.ly/2UWyDd5

Some great quotes by Dr. Just in this article:
Happy Father's Day to all faculty and grad students that are blessed to have little people in your lives!
Our graduate students led an interesting community activity at the public library today.
REMINDER: Please send your submission by this Friday! It's OK if you didn't know Dr. Golos personally; we are looking to share any and all stories about OU Mathematics with him. Thanks! Original post: Dear OU Mathematics Students, Faculty and Alumni, Dr. Ellery Golos, the founder of the Honors Tutorial College and OU Mathematics professor for over 40 years, will soon be turning 92. In honor of his birthday, his daughters are compiling a scrapbook filled with stories about his impact on students and colleagues. Would you be willing to share your thoughts? Any special OU Mathematics experiences or memories you'd like to convey? If you knew Ellery, we especially want to hear your stories. Please email all responses to Pam Golos at [email protected] by Friday September 7. If that deadline poses challenges or you have any questions, please contact Debbie Golos Schmitz at [email protected]. Thanks so much!

Hi there! I'm a business public radio reporter doing a story about a recent OSU study which found that women with high GPAs applying for an entry level job were called back significantly less than men with lower grades. It found the gender disparity in callbacks was especially pronounced for women math majors. For this story, I'd like to include some reactions/reflections from women who are majoring in math, and perhaps are, or are about to be, on the job market. Is there a student(s) you might recommend I reach out to who might be willing to share their two cents? If so, please feel free to let me know at your earliest convenience. Also, please feel free to forward my contact info to anyone you think may be interested. My cell is 216-210-9061 and my email is [email protected]. Best and thanks, Adrian Ma Business Reporter WCPN / Marketplace
