    Recent years have witnessed increased research activity on the interface between logic and universal algebra. In particular, the use of algebraic methods has proved to be fruitful in the study of non-classical logics as well as in investigations related to the constraint satisfaction problem. The purpose of the conference is to bring together researchers from these fields to foster collaboration and further research.

  • Bard Math Circle in Kingston

    Mathematical Circles are a form of education enrichment and outreach that bring mathematicians and mathematical scientists into direct contact with pre-college students.

  • Bard Math Circle meets in the Kingston Library

    I’m helping the Bard Math Circle start up math circle activities in the Kingston Library. Each session will include time for puzzles and games, creative mathematical problem solving, and a hands-on math activity with a take-away. Meetings this fall: 1pm to 3pm on each second Saturday (September 11, October 9, November 13 and December 11) at the […]
