Penn State Berks Hosts Liberty Bell Symposium, June 25-30

Penn State Berks, in collaboration with the Real Analysis Exchange, will host a Summer Symposium titled Real Analysis XXXVI, an international conference for mathematicians, from June 25-30, 2012, in the Gaige Technology and Business Innovation Building. The symposium will include twenty sessions, and the opening session will taking place on Tuesday, June 26, from 9:00–9:30 a.m. in room 121, Gaige Building.

According to Dr. Ali Alikhani-Koopaei, Associate Professor of Mathematics at Penn State Berks, approximately forty attendees are expected to attend the symposium from all over the world.

The program will include hour-long talks by Zoltán Buczolich (Budapest), Associate Professor of Mathematics at Eötvös Lorand University; Emma D'Aniello (Naples), Associate Professor of Analysis at the Seconda Università degli Studi di Napoli; and Yang Wang, Head of the Department of Mathematics at Michigan State University.

Buczolich earned his Ph. D., and completed his Habilitation at the prestigious Eötvös Lorand University in Hungary. In 2005, he solved the long-standing Gradient Problem, first posed by Clifford Weil in 1990. Buczolich has been a member of the Mathematical Committee of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and a member of the Mathematical Jury of the Hungarian National Science Foundation.

D'Aniello has served as Van Vleck Visiting Scholar in Mathematics by the Department of Mathematics of Wesleyan University, as Visiting Scholar at Washington and Lee University in Virginia, and Visiting Researcher at the Instituto Superior Tècnico of Lisbon. She currently serves as the Scientific Coordinator of a research project group GNAMPA 2011 and is currently the Scientific Co-Coordinator of the "Dynamical Systems, Fluidynamics and Symmetrization" project in Campania.

Wang earned his Ph.D. from Harvard University. He has written extensively on topics including Classical Real Analysis, Harmonic Analysis, Fractal Geometry and Tilings, as well as Digital Processing and Supply Chain Management. His research career has been characterized by strong and continuous financial support from a variety of funding agencies including the National Science Foundation.

The National Science Foundation and several private foundations will help offset the costs of this symposium.
