Frederick V. Pohle Colloquium in the History of Mathematics


The Frederick V. Pohle Colloquium in the History of Mathematics was founded in September 1998. It is hosted by the Department of Mathematics & Computer Science at Adelphi University in Garden City, NY, 11530. The Colloquium is named in honor of our departed colleague, Fred Pohle, a former chairman of the department.

  • The colloquium usually meets on the first Wednesday of the month.
  • All talks are held in Alumnae Hall, room 116, at 4:15
  • Coffee is served at 4:00
  • Dinner with the speaker at a local restaurant generally follows each talk; everyone is welcome.
