Math Seniors and Juniors,
Dr. Andrea Bertozzi is visiting from UCLA. She directs the applied math graduate program there, and is a Princeton alumnae ('87 *91). She would like to talk to current Princeton math majors about graduate school in general and about the program at UCLA (both pure and applied).
Dr. Bertozzi will host a PIZZA lunch in the PL at 12:30 Tues November 26.
Please RSVP IMEDIATELY to firstname.lastname@example.org

Mathematics major Xinyi Chen '15 has been awarded a \$100,000 "20 under 20" fellowship from the Thiel Foundation. The fellowship awards 20 students under 20 years of age with \$100,000 over two years to start a company. Chen had participated in the Tigerlabs startup accelerator last summer and has founded a company aimed at improving telepresence and video chat technologies for mobile devices.

NEW COURSE: Fall 2013, MAT 301 (HA): The History of Mathematics, Tues & Thurs 1:30-2:50pm.
Behind the famous names and seemingly-timeless theorems of your mathematics classes, there is a rich and fascinating history filled with controversies, blind alleys, fanciful inspirations, and social prerogatives.
This seminar will examine themes and ideas from the history of mathematics spanning the entirety of human history, from the oldest surviving written texts (numbers on clay tablets) to the present, with a focus on the mathematics of modern Europe.
