In the first of what I hope is an ongoing series of interviews with fellow mathematicians, here is my conversation with Richard J. Nowakowski. We sometimes just call him RJN for short. Richard works on graph theory and combinatorial game theory at Dalhousie University, where he is a University Research Professor. He completed his M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees under […]
Non-existence theorem There is no statue of Emmy Noether. Yes, she’s had a Google doodle. Yes, there is a bust of her in the Hall of Fame in Munich. But no statue. To those who don’t know, Noether was one of the most influential of twentieth century mathematicians. She accomplished ground-breaking work in abstract algebra, and had a… Read More Emmy Noether’s statue?
Nassif Ghoussoub is the founder and current director of the Banff International Research Station, the founding director of the Pacific Institute of Mathematics, and the co-founder of MITACS NCE. On top of all that, he is an award-winning mathematician, whose most recent work focuses on differential equations and mass transport theory. I met Nassif when he… Read More Interview with a mathematician: Nassif Ghoussoub
