Hopkins Hosts International Math Conference

Mathematicians from around the world will meet at The Johns Hopkins University on March 31 for an annual four-day conference. The theme of this year's conference is linear and non-linear scattering, a popular area of specialty that has many theoretical as well as physical applications, including quantum mechanics. The annual conference is co-sponsored by the Department of Mathematics and the Japan-U.S. Mathematics Institute (JAMI), an exchange program that allows Japanese mathematicians to come to Hopkins to do research and become acquainted with math professors here.

The program will be preceded on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday by an informal workshop dealing with scattering theory. The actual conference begins Friday, March 31, and continues through Monday. About 20 mathematicians will deliver lectures, which will be held in 205 Krieger Hall.

The program began in 1988 and is intended to foster friendly relations between Japan and the United States and to strengthen the long-existing relationship between the math department and the Japanese mathematical community. For more information contact the math department at 516-4178 (or by e-mail: jami@math.jhu.edu).
