    The Fourth Abel Conference: A Celebration of Yakov G. Sinai, will be held soon on Oct. 31 - Nov. 2, 2014.
    Two mathematicians, Jacob Lurie (algebraic geometry) and Yitang Zhang (number theory), have been named 2014 MacArthur fellows. Recipients are chosen from a wide variety of disciplines including writing, the arts, the sciences and social sciences, the humanities, and entrepreneurship, and must demonstrate exceptional creativity and promise for important future advances. Details about the fellowship can be found here and a complete list of the 2014 MacArthur fellows can be found here
    Ole Miss math professor Sandra Spiroff is one of the official visiting scholars at the University of Utah
    Maryam Mirzakhani (dynamics/geometry), a professor of mathematics at Stanford University, became the first woman to win the Fields Medal, the most prestigious prize in mathematics. The 2014 Fields Medal was also awarded to Artur Avila (dynamical systems), Manjul Bhargava (number theory), and Martin Hairer (stochastic PDEs). Quanta Magazine brings nice pieces about these mathematicians and their work. Terrence Tao briefly describes part of their research here
    Our Graduate Student Chapter is featured on the American Mathematical Society website
