SUMMARY:Spring 2013 Mathematics Colloquium - April 22nd
DESCRIPTION: April 22, 2013 "Tropical Mathematics" Professor Bernd Sturmfels University of California at Berkeley Abstract: Bernd Sturmfels received doctoral degrees in Mathematics in 1987 from the University of Washington, Seattle, and the Technical University Darmstadt, Germany. After postdoctoral years in Minneapolis and Linz, Austria, he taught at Cornell University, before joining UC Berkeley in 1995, where he is Professor of Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science. His awards include a National Young Investigator Fellowship, a Sloan Fellowship, and a David and Lucile Packard Fellowship, a Clay Senior Scholarship, an Alexander von Humboldt Senior Research Prize, the SIAM von Neumann Lecturership, and a Sarlo Distinguished Mentoring Award. Recently, he served as Vice President of the American Mathematical Society. A leading experimentalist among mathematicians, Sturmfels has authored ten books and over 200 research articles, in the areas of combinatorics, algebraic geometry, symbolic computation and their applications. He has mentored 35 doctoral students and numerous postdocs. His current research focuses on algebraic statistics and computational algebraic geometry.
