    Prof. Jerzy Weyman will deliver the 20th Dalrymple Lecture in Mathematics, on October 29th, 20015, at 6:00 PM, Overby Center Auditorium. The abstract of his talk can be read here. Prof. Weyman got his Ph.D. from Brandeis University in 1980. His interests span several branches of algebra: Commutative Algebra, Algebraic Geometry, Representation Theory and Invariant Theory. Since 1985 until 2013 he held a position at Northeastern University in Boston. Since 2013 he is Joan and Stuart Sydney Professor of Mathematics at the University of Connecticut at Storrs. Weyman was the recipient of the Kuratowki Prize of the Polish Mathematical Society in 1983. He was awarded the Humboldt Research Prize in 2011 and was the recipient of the Sierpiński medal in 2015.
    On Saturday, October 17th, the University of Mississippi hosted its 11th annual math tournament for high school students. 12 teams competed in the team competition, representing high schools from as far away as D’Iberville! The winning teams were from Collierville High School and from Oxford High School. 46 students took part in the individual competition. Joey He and Akaash Padmanabha from Collierville tied for first place, with a perfect score! Shawn Chao and Edward Hu from Oxford tied for second place.
