Mathematics Professor Sunder Sethuraman has received an NSF grant for the "Frontier Probability Days 2014" conference.

Frontier Probability Days 2014 is a three day conference to be held at The University of Arizona, in Tucson, May 18 - 20, 2014. The purpose of the meeting is to bring together leading regional and national researchers in probability theory and its applications, graduate students and others, to foster interactions and stimulate research activity in this area. The format consists of 7 plenary talks and several shorter presentations. The plenary speakers represent a spectrum of leading work in probability and its applications. Topics of interest for the conference include disordered and interacting systems, random matrices, stochastic analysis and probabilistic applications to biology and dynamical systems. Read more...

Dr. Aubrey Neihaus has received a grant from the Intel Foundation

The Institute for Mathematics and Education (IM &E) has served as the managing agency for the Intel Math program since 2009. With the widespread adoption of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM), the IM & E felt that it was time to edit the Intel Math program materials to bring them into tighter alignment with the CCSSM, and generally improve the content and professionalism of the materials. The editing work began in the fall of 2012 and this grant through the Intel Foundation will, in part, support the project through its completion in the spring 2014.

Mathematics Professor Romyar Sharifi has received an NSF grant for "Conferences and Meetings: Southwest Center for Arithmetic Geometry."

The Southwest Center for Arithmetic Geometry will continue its series of annual "Winter Schools" in 2013, 2014, 2015, with the 2013 Arizona Winter School taking place March 9-13, 2013 at the University of Arizona in Tucson, AZ. The Southwest Center for Arithmetic Geometry was founded in 1997. The NSF has provided the primary support for the center since its inception, with renewal of funding in 2002, 2006, 2009, and 2012. The primary activity of the Southwest Center is the Arizona Winter School (AWS), an annual meeting which has become a prominent national event and provides high-level training and research experience for graduate students in arithmetic geometry. The AWS is an intensive five-day meeting, organized around a different central topic each year, that features a set of courses by leading and emerging experts. The AWS is not a traditional conference: the speakers organize courses of four lectures, provide lecture notes in advance, and propose projects for graduate students to work on during the meeting. Nightly working sessions on these projects and on separate problem sets are run by the speakers and postdoctoral fellows. On the last day, students present their findings to the participants of the meeting. The result is a particularly intense and focused five days of mathematical activity for everyone involved. Recent Winter School topics have included Number Theory and Dynamics, Stark-Heegner Points, and Ramification and Geometry. The topics of upcoming Winter Schools will be guided by future mathematical developments. Read more...

Mathematics Professor Sunder Sethuraman has received a grant from the US Army to evaluate Scaling limits in stochastic interacting systems.

The proposed project considers various scaling limits of stochastic processes used in the modeling of traffic, fluids, etc., which connect microscopic behaviors to continuum descriptions. More specifically, the space-time fluctuations of the mass density and additive functionals, including occupations times, in interacting systems of random walks, such as simple exclusion and zero-range models, which are 'mass conservative' are considered.
