Everything Is Mathematics Lectures
The lecture series is made possible in part by a generous endowment by UA mathematics alumnus Duncan Buell, now professor of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of South Carolina.
Buell, a public intellectual himself, believes in the value of raising public awareness about the relevance, beauty, and applicability of mathematics, in its many forms.
Buell's commitment to benefitting the larger good is widespread. For example, his work on electronic voting served to keep wait times below goal in the 2016 national election in Maricopa County, AZ.
