The 29th Annual New York State Regional Graduate Mathematics Conference will be held at Syracuse University April 4 and 5. Registration for the conference is $10 for faculty, $5 for graduate students and high school educators, and free for high school students and undergraduate students. Registration information is available on the Web at http://math.syr.edu/~mgo or by calling 443-1471.
The conference is presented by SU’s Department of Mathematics, the Office of Research and Computing, the Graduate Student Organization and the Graduate School. Scheduled events include an opening address by Eugene Dynkin, the A.R. Bullis Chair in Mathematics at Cornell University, April 4 at 8 p.m. in the Physics Building’s Stolkin Auditorium; and a keynote address by David Ben-Zvi, the Dickson Instructor in Mathematics at the University of Chicago April 5 at 11 a.m. in the Heory Geology Laboratory’s Heroy Auditorium.
The conference will also include a series of presentations by graduate students and faculty April 5 from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. and 2 to 5:30 p.m. on the third floor of the Carnegie Building
Ben-Zvi earned a master’s degree and Ph.D. in mathematics from Harvard University in 1996 and 1999 respectively. He earned a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from Princeton University in 1994. He is the co-author of “Vertex Algebras and Algebraic Curves” (American Mathematical Society, 2001) and of several papers. His areas of research and expertise include algebraic geometry, mathematical physics, geometric realization of conformal field theory, vertex algebras and integrable systems on moduli spaces, noncommutative geometry, and the geometric Langlands correspondence.
