Faculty to serve on American mathmatical society panel

Three SHSU faculty members in the mathematics department will serve as panelists and presenters for an estimated 4,600 mathematicians at an upcoming joint conference.

The Joint Mathematics Meetings of the American Mathematical Society and the Mathematical Association of America, which will be held Jan. 12-15 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, will feature Jacqueline A. Jensen, John W. Snow and Jon W. Short.

Jensen will serve as a panelist in the MAA-YMN panel discussion “You have a job, now what? Professional Development Opportunities” on Jan. 12.

Snow, an organizer of the AMS special session, will discuss the “Many Lives of Lattice Theory,” the “Theory of Ordered Sets,” and “Universal Algebra, I, II and III,” on Jan. 13-14. He will also present “M-4 and Congruence Heredity” on Jan. 13 and a program with the title of the book he co-authored, “Semilattices and Congruence Heredity,” also will be presented on Jan. 13.

A program on Short’s book, which he co-authored, entitled “When Do Locally Isometric Topologies For The Real Numbers Yield Isomorphic Topological Groups?” will be presented on Jan. 15.

In addition to the AMS and MAA members, members from professional societies such as the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, the Association for Women in Mathematics, the National Association of Mathemati

The Joint Mathematics Meetings are held for the purpose of advancing mathematical achievement, encouraging research and providing communication in the field. The meetings serve to preserve, supplement and utilize the research results of mathematicians worldwide.
