Mathematics Seminar

The Mathematics Seminar is the venue where Towson faculty and students report on their research activities. The Graduate Seminar hosts expository talks by faculty that introduce graduate students in the departmental APIM Master's program to topics that present opportunities for graduate research projects. 

Upcoming Seminar Meetings

The next meeting of the Graduate Seminar will take place on Monday, October 16, at 4:30 pm in Room 320 of 7800 York Road. Dr. Christopher R. Cornwell will present a graduate seminar on Analysing high-dimensional data.

Abstract: The world is overflowing with data sets, coming from diverse sources and often in the form of a large collection of points in a space with high dimension. We will discuss features of data sets that can be analyzed even without a predetermined model, some of the issues that are encountered, and new techniques, coming from pure mathematics, which try to address these issues.

The next meeting of the Faculty Seminar will take place on Friday, November 3, at 2 pm in Room 205 of 7800 York Road. Dr. Alexei S. Kolesnikov will give a sabbatical talk on Homology groups in model theory.
