Colloquia / Seminars

The Department of Mathematics runs three active programs aimed at the academic involvement of faculty, students, and the general public:

Colloquia

This is a lecture series delivered by speakers from different universities around the country in a wide variety of topics and research areas. The goal of these lectures is to introduce attendees to current, ongoing research in mathematics and mathematics education, especially as it pertains to students who wish to get involved in undergraduate research. Occasionally lectures on topics of historical and general interest as well as popular mathematics are delivered. If you would like to give a talk, please contact Dr. Steve Chung (schung@csufresno.edu). For details and upcoming speakers please click on the Colloquia link at the left.

Seminars

This program consist of research talks delivered by faculty and students in the department on current and ongoing work. We welcome speakers and attendants from other departments whose research work and interests involve mathematics in any form. If you would like to give a talk, please contact Dr. Steve Chung (schung@csufresno.edu). For details and upcoming speakers please click on the Seminars link at the left.

Graduate and Undergraduate Student Seminar (GAUSS)

The goal of this seminar is to share and spread our love for mathematics. We seek for mainly student speakers, or talks that have been designed for an undergraduate audience. The talks can be of any length, between 20 minutes to 50 minutes, and consist of any mathematics or mathematics-related topic. If you would like to give a talk, please contact Dr. Carmen Caprau (ccaprau@csufresno.edu). For details and upcoming speakers please click on the GAUSS link at the left.

Undergraduate Mathematics Seminar

The seminar is intended for students who have interest in increasing their exposure to various topics in mathematics. Mathematics faculty give talks on topics not usually covered in a course, giving students an opportunity to discover new concepts, and to engage with problems from mathematics, as well as to appreciate the way mathematicians think about such problems. The seminar is an excellent way to learn about topics suitable for undergraduate research, and to meet mathematics faculty who are happy to supervise students in exploratory and research projects.
