Richard Stanley (MIT) and Bernd Sturmfels (UC Berkeley) are the first in the nation to be named Clay Senior Scholars. They will both be in residence at the Summer Session of the Park City Mathematics Institute, a program of the Institute for Advanced Study (Princeton, NJ), which runs until July 30. The focus of this year's program is geometric combinatorics.
Professor Sturmfels will deliver a public lecture entitled Tropical Mathematics on Tuesday, July 20, at 3:15 PM, also in the Grand Theater at Prospector.
These public lectures are designed for the general audience. Teachers of mathematics and members of the public with a lively interest in math, young and old, are especially invited to attend.
