Show List of Speakers


San Francisco State University and the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute will conduct a weekend workshop at SFSU on modern developments in mathematics that will be the focus of upcoming research programs and summer graduate programs at MSRI, supplemented by additional special invited talks. All presentations will be expository, intended for faculty who may not be closely working in these areas, as well as for graduate students who have had the usual general preparation for advanced study in the early part of a Ph.D. program but who may not yet have specialized. Talks on MSRI programs will include descriptions of different ways to be involved with these programs. The speakers, as listed below, will also be available for one-on-one discussions with those who are interested. Directions to SFSU The best way to get from the hotel to SFSU is to take the M streetcar from downtown Market Street to SFSU. The hotel can tell people how to walk the few blocks to the Muni station on Market Street. Take the outbound M car and get off right in front of SFSU. Note that the Muni station shares a location with a BART station. The BART tracks are one floor below the Muni tracks. If driving, free parking is available all around campus. The weekday time limits don't apply on the weekend. The meeting will be held in SCI 101. That's at the west side of the Science building closest to the quad.
