With birthday tributes to Harry Barrett, Jim Cushing and Hermann Flaschka
April 25th - 27th 2014
Please mark your calendars and make plans to attend a meeting at the University of Arizona to celebrate the (approximately) 35th anniversary of the Program in Applied Mathematics and to recognize the many contributions made to the Program by Harry Barrett, Jim Cushing and Hermann Flaschka (their birthdays are unspecified). The meeting will include the participation of previous Program Heads, Bob O’Malley, Alan Newell, Dave McLaughlin, Tim Secomb, and Alain Goriely; former colleagues such as Tudor Ratiu, Chris Jones and Mac Hyman; and Program alumni including Mike Shelley, Peter Miller, Natalia Komarova, Annalisa Calini, Aaron King, Nakul Chitnis, Luis Garcia Naranjo, Rosalyn Rael, Suzanne Robertson, Julia Arciero, and many others.
The full details of the program are still being worked out. The goal is for old friends and colleagues to meet up and enjoy some (but not too many) stimulating talks and discussions. Naturally three of the topical themes will reflect the interests of Harry, Jim, and Hermann; namely medical imaging, quantitative biology, and nonlinear pdes and integrable systems.
We have arranged for hotel accommodations at a very competitive rate at the new ALoft Tucson University Hotel located at 1900 E. Speedway Blvd., Tucson, AZ 85719. Please click on the following link to set up your reservations:
The complete logistical aspects of the meeting such as lecture rooms, social events, and how many kegs of beer we will need will be posted soon. Please understand that the nature and length of this meeting is such that your attendance does not necessarily mean that you will have the opportunity to talk about your work. To a first approximation we have no funds to support participant travel and, for the most part, participants will have to pay their own way (think of it as a short vacation).
