Keynote Talk - BIO 101

 

Speaker:

Deborah Hughes Hallett, University of Arizona

Title:

Where Can Mathematics Take You?  All Over the World!

 

 

Abstract:

Many people study mathematics for its beauty; others study mathematics because it opens doors to many professions. In this talk we will look at the ways mathematics is used in fields that impact the lives of millions. Examples will include the use of differential equations to curb the spread of an infectious disease, such as SARS, and what statistical models can tell us about the impact of climate change on civil war.

4:00

 

Planning meeting for next year

 

CONFERENCE SUPPORT:  The Northern California Undergraduate Mathematics Conference is sponsored by the Mathematical Association of America (through NSF grant DMS-0846477), the College of the Pacific (through a Pacific Fund grant), and Phi Beta Kappa, Chi of California (at University of the Pacific).
