Math Department to host international research conference

In October, the Department of Mathematics in the College of Science and Mathematics at Augusta University will host the “Integers Conference 2018,” a four-day conference focused on the mathematical areas of combinatorics and number theory.

The conference is supported, in part, through a grant from the National Science Foundation and is intended for both students and mathematicians.

“The focus of the conference, combinatorial number theory, is a very accessible branch of mathematics, where many of the research problems are understandable to both students and mathematicians,” said Dr. Bruce Landman, chair of the department of math and conference organizer. “The conference provides a wonderful opportunity for budding mathematicians to learn from, and share their ideas with, world-class researchers.”

This will be the eighth Integers Conference — the first was held in 2003 — and the prestigious event will attract participants from around the world. The conference will feature three plenary speakers along with other celebrated mathematicians.

There will be 72 speakers, including 10 students, from all over the United States and the world. Together the speakers represent a wide range of career stages, from students conducting their own research to senior scholars.

In addition to Landman, the conference is being organized by Florian Luca of the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, Melvyn Nathanson of the City University of New York, Jaroslav Nesetril of Charles University in Prague, Richard Nowakowski of Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia, Aaron Robertson of Colgate University and David Leach of the University of West Georgia.

The proceedings of the Integers Conference 2018 will be published as a special volume of the journal Integers. Landman serves as the journal’s managing editor.

The conference will be held Wednesday through Saturday, Oct. 3-6, at the Augusta Marriott at the Convention Center. For more information about the conference or to register, visit the conference website.
