(NEW Abstract)

In a series of three talks, I will present connections between recent research in dynamical systems and the classical theory of elliptic curves and rational points. On the dynamical side -- specifically in the study of iteration of rational functions (Julia sets, bifurcations, the Mandelbrot set) -- the first connections were observed about 100 years ago. On the arithmetic side, it was probably the 1960s when dynamical ideas were first used as tools to understand the arithmetic geometry of elliptic curves and higher-dimensional varieties. My goal is to provide an overview of how these relationships developed and where they have brought us today. The three lectures will be independent.

Other Mathematical Session

Read the Masters Session: Euler's Introductio in Analysin Infinitorum

Thursday, August 1, 3:40 p.m. - 5:40 p.m., Duke Energy Convention Center, Room 201

Important Announcement: Anyone interested in participating in this event may wish to review the reading from Euler’s Introductio beforehand, at https://tinyurl.com/ReadTheMasters2019

Description

Leonhard Euler's Introductio (1748) is a key text in the history of mathematics. In it, Euler provided the foundation for much of today's mathematical analysis, focusing in particular on functions and their development into infinite series. At this event, a brief description of what is entailed in engaging historical texts, especially through small reading groups, will precede an open reading session of a portion of the Introductio (in English translation, with guiding questions) by attendees in small groups, followed by a general discussion. No experience with the history of mathematics is required.

(NEW Lecture Title and Abstract)

Why Inclusivity Matters for IBL

Victor Piercey, Ferris State University

Thursday, August 1, 4:30 p.m. - 5:50 p.m., Duke Energy Convention Center, Room 200

Many of us recognize the importance of inclusion within the mathematics community, but some might question why it is particularly important for IBL. We will address this question by identifying the challenges and opportunities for an inclusive classroom climate that arise uniquely when IBL is used. We will also share some practical tips to improve the climate for inclusion in your IBL class.

 

SIGMAA Activity

UR SIGMAA Guest Panel and Lunch

Saturday, August 3, 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m., Duke Energy Convention Center, Room 237 & 238

(NEW Description and Panel)

Choosing good research problems to work on with undergraduate students is an art. In creating a research experience, a mentor must ask themselves a variety of questions. Can my students work in my research area, or do we need to explore a new area together? Will my students be able to start thinking about problems in my chosen field immediately, or will they need to learn some background material first? What kinds of questions will be too hard, leading to a frustrating lack of progress? What kinds of questions will be too easy, leaving my students with too much free time on their hands? In general, what are some good qualities to look for in a research problem for students? A panel of successful undergraduate research mentors will share their experiences to begin a broader conversation on this topic that can continue over food and drinks, provided by the UR SIGMAA.

Moderator:
Anant Godbole, East Tennessee State University

Panelists:
Vinodh Chellamuthu, Dixie State University
Dominic Klyve, Central Washington University
Suzanne Lenhart, University of Tennessee Knoxville
Lara Pudwell, Valparaiso University
