AMS Other Events

Council, Tuesday, 1:30 pm.

Business Meeting, Saturday, 11:45 am.

Grad School Fair, Friday, 8:30–10:30 am. Here is the opportunity for undergrads to meet representatives from mathematical sciences graduate programs from universities all over the country. January is a great time for juniors to learn more, and college seniors may still be able to refine their search. This is your chance for one-stop shopping in the graduate school market. At JMM 2020, over 300 students met with representatives from more than 70 graduate programs. If your school has a graduate program and you are interested in participating, for US\$130, a table will be provided for your posters and printed materials, and you are welcome to personally speak to interested students. Complimentary coffee will be served, sponsored by the AMS. Participants who are attending the JMM solely to participate as a Grad School Fair Exhibitor should contact the MMSB at to receive a special registration code to use when registering.

Current Events Bulletin, organized by David Eisenbud, Mathematical Sciences Research Institute; Friday, 2:00–6:00 pm. Speakers in this session follow the model of the Bourbaki Seminars in that mathematicians with strong expository skills speak on work not their own. Written versions of the talks will be available online after the conclusion of the meeting.

Lecture IV is supported by a generous donation from Salilesh Mukhopadhyay, in honor of Satyendra Nath Bose, Mahadev Dutta, and Pranab K. Sarkar, to bring appreciation for mathematics to a broader audience.

Mathematically Bent Theater, featuring Colin Adams and the Mobiusbandaid Players, Friday, 6:00-7:00 pm. What does it mean when someone calls you an asymptote? Why are sheaves so much funnier than linear regression? Is it true that when his teacher asked Joe Biden to add all the numbers from 1 to 100, that's what he did? These are just a few of the questions we will not answer during this theatrical presentation of several short humorous mathematically inclined pieces.
