The Department of Mathematics at the University of Dayton presents:

Fall Math Events 2007

Undergraduate Mathematics Day

in conjunction with

The 8th Annual Schraut Memorial Lecture

Saturday, November 3, 2007

Undergraduate Mathematics Day at the University of Dayton is an event to celebrate undergraduate mathematics in all forms – research, learning, teaching, history – and to provide an opportunity for undergraduate mathematicians to meet and network with more established mathematicians. We invite talks by both students and faculty.

The 8th Annual Kenneth C. Schraut Memorial Lecture will be delivered by Dr. William Dunham,Truman Koehler Professor of Mathematics at Muhlenberg College and author of several books, including "Journey Through Genius: The Great Theorems of Mathematics" and "Euler: The Master of Us All." In honor of Leonhard Euler's 300th birthday, Dr. Dunham will present the talk "An Euler Trifecta."

We will also have the opportunity to hear an invited talk by Dr. Colleen Hoover from St. Mary's College entitled "Garden-variety Symmetry."

We will publish electronic, refereed Proceedings of the conference (click here for the Proceedings for Undergraduate Mathematics Day 2005).  More details will be available later.

Wiebke Diestelkamp, Associate Professor, University of Dayton
Aparna Higgins, Professor, University of Dayton
