Bernard Mathematics Lecture

Lawrence Baggett '60

8 p.m.  •  C. Shaw Smith 900 Room, Alvarez College Union

 

Lawrence Baggett '60 will deliver the annual Bernard Society of Mathematics Lecture “What We Don't Know We Don't Know.” Baggett, professor emeritus of mathematics at the University of Colorado-Boulder, will describe a remarkable discovery of something we didn't know we didn't know and will discuss how this discovery spawned and reformulated many important areas of mathematics, including analysis, probability and set theory.

 

Baggett has published scores of research articles in prestigious journals and has been a visiting professor at the universities of Oslo, Rome and Adelaide. Blinded at the age of five, his journey through academics, mathematics and faculty life has had a number of twists and turns not common to other mathematicians. His most recent publication, In the Dark on the Sunny Side–A Memoir of an Out-of-Sight, is a memoir

 

The lecture is free and open to the public. Call 704-894-2315 or 704-894-2317 for information.
