Atul Vyas Memorial Lecture in Mathematics Set for Dec. 10

The mathematics department is hosting the second Atul Vyas Memorial Lecture in Mathematics at 4 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 10. The lecture will be held in Davidson Lecture Hall.
Vyas was a member of the CMC Class of 2009. He was killed in a train crash that occurred on Sept. 12, 2008, in Chatsworth, Calif. A mathematics and physics major, he was fascinated by the power of mathematical abstraction and its applications.
In memory of Vyas, the CMC mathematics department hosts a yearly lecture series on the creative application of abstract mathematical ideas. This year's speaker is Vin de Silva, assistant professor of mathematics at Pomona College, who will make a presentation on "Topology: The Geometry That Isn't." A reception will precede the lecture.
