70th semi-annual Harry S. Kieval Lecture

When: Tue., Sept. 12, 7:30 p.m. 2017
Price: Free
The HSU Department of Mathematics welcomes Dr. Ken Ono, the Asa Griggs Candler Professor of Mathematics at Emory University, to deliver the 70th semi-annual Harry S. Kieval Lecture on Tuesday, September 12. The title of the lecture is “Gems of Ramanujan and their Lasting Impact on Mathematics.” Ono will discuss the work of Indian mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan (1887-1920) and its profound effect on modern mathematics and Ono’s research. Among his many accomplishments, Ono is an associate producer of a film about Ramanujan, “The Man Who Knew Infinity” (starring Dev Patel and Jeremy Irons). He will share several clips from the film during his talk. No previous knowledge of the subject will be assumed, and the lecture will be accessible to a general audience. This is the 70th Harry S. Kieval Lecture. The lecture series is named for HSU Mathematics Professor Emeritus, Dr. Harry S. Kieval, who taught at HSU from 1966 to 1979. The series includes topics on popular and/or broad aspects of mathematics attractive to undergraduates and the public. The lecture takes place in Founders Hall Room 118 on the HSU campus, starting at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, September 12, 2017. This event is free to the public.
