In honor of professor Mauldin's contribution to mathematics and UNT, a conference in logic and dynamics with a celebration of his work is being held at UNT June 4-8. The conference will feature special talks devoted to his accomplishments.
R. Daniel Mauldin received his Ph.D. from the University of Texas, Austin, in 1969 under the supervision of H.S. Wall. Professor Mauldin's research interests span a wide variety of subjects including dynamics, logic, descriptive set theory, analysis, and probability. Professor Mauldin came to UNT (then North Texas State University) in 1977, became full professor in 1979, Regents professor in 1988, and is now Professor Emeritus. He has written 150 papers on diverse topics, including several with his friend and colleague Paul Erdös. Professor Mauldin was the editor of the 1981 publication of the famous "Scottish book,'' a collection of mathematical problems written down by the leading Polish mathematicians of the 30's who met regularly at the Scottish Cafe in Lwów, Poland. He is the author (with M. Urbański) of the book Graph directed markovian systems: the dynamics and geometry of limit sets. Professor Mauldin has been the recipient of numerous grants from the National Science Foundation.
Professor Mauldin has finished 17 Ph.D. students. He has been a consultant for several high ranking govermnent organizations such as the Los Alamos national laboratory, the Navy Dynamics Institute, and the Center for Communications Research. He has served as Editor for several mathematical journals including the Proceedings of the AMS, Advances in Mathematics, and the Real Analysis Exchange. He has also had an extensive service contribution to UNT.
