The Department of Mathematics has been sending out a weekly newsletter since 2007. Most of the past newsletters are stored in the department newsletter archive maintained by its editor, Prof. Sankar Sitaraman.
The Howard mathematics department is very excited to host the Spring Eastern Sectional Meeting of the American Mathematical Society (AMS) on April 6-7, 2024. Highlights of the Howard AMS meeting include over 40 Special Sessions, three Invited Addresses, and the Einstein Public Lecture in Mathematics. The Invited Addresses will be delivered by Ryan Hynd (University of Maryland), Jinyoung Park (New York University), and Jian Song (Rutgers University). The Einstein Public Lecture will be delivered by Talitha Washington (Clark Atlanta University), formerly a Howard math faculty member.
We are excited to announce the renewal of Howard University SIAM Student Chapter, dedicated to promoting industrial and applied mathematics on our campus. It will provide a platform for Howard students to engage with each other, with faculty, and with the larger mathematical community. Our SIAM chapter brings together students from various disciplines, encouraging interdisciplinary collaboration that reaches beyond mathematics.
