RTG's International Conference on Logic and Dynamics with a celebration of the work of Dan Mauldin

Mathematicians and students from across the United States, as well as Canada, Denmark, England, France, Hungary, Israel, Scotland, converged in the Business Leadership Building the week of June 4 for the conference, Logic, Dynamics and Their Interactions, with a Celebration of the Work of Dan Mauldin. The conference, organized by the Research Training Group and supported by the University and the National Science Foundation, presented a five-day program comprising 26 individual talks and two, three-talk "mini-courses."

The prime objective of the conference - bringing together a spectrum of logicians and dynamists, both prominent and promising, for a program including exciting, current research and emph Tushar Das)asizing the interface between these two specializations - was achieved with great success!

The conference likewise succeeded in its intention to pay tribute to UNT Professor Emeritus Dan Mauldin's contributions to logic, dynamics and UNT. The program included presentations by a number of Mauldin's collaborators and former students as well as a joint talk by UNT Department of Mathematics faculty, Dr. Jackson and Dr. Urbański, highlighting select logic and dynamics research results obtained by Mauldin. Mauldin was also the guest of honor at the conference banquet, which featured a testimonial comprised of comments, letters and a slideshow of photos from personal collections, all contributed by family, friends, collaborators, colleagues and students, as well as Dr. Mauldin's math geneaology

The conference also acheived broader goals through introducing UNT's physical campus to many attendees who had never visited us before and underscoring the Department of Mathematics efforts toward establishing itself as a strong presence in math research.

Conference webpages featuring the program with talk abstracts, speakers' slides, a full participant list and a variety of general information related to the conference can be accessed via the link in the conference title in the first paragraph of this story as well as through other links throughout the Department of Mathematics web pages.
