 MAILED:  Sept. 10, 2003

The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire department of mathematics will host a mathematics conference Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 20-21, in Room 101 of Hibbard Hall.

“Invariants, Differential Operators and their Relation to Combinatorics and Geometry” will feature presentations by Roger Howe, Yale University; Harm Derksen, University of Michigan; Tuong Ton-That, University of Iowa; Gail Ratcliff, East Carolina University; and Vic Reiner and Dennis Stanton, University of Minnesota. All are internationally known experts in this field.

“Having mathematicians of this caliber visiting our campus indicates the high level of involvement of the UW-Eau Claire mathematics department with the larger mathematical community,” said Provost and Vice Chancellor Ron Satz.

Funding is provided by the UW-Eau Claire Office of Research and Sponsored Programs, UW-Madison and UW-Eau Claire departments of mathematics, and the National Science Foundation.
