COMAP 2022

Hello Mathematics majors and any other students interested in Mathematical applications. I would like to bring your attention to a mathematical modeling competition open to all college students.

COMAP (Consortium for Mathematics and its Applications) organizes every year an international modeling competition between groups of students (up to 3 per group) from all over the world. The competition is completely online and lasts for four days.
A list of application problems is provided to the students that select one and then have the four days of the competition to spend working on a possible practical approach solution for their selected problem and write a report.

For more specific information please consult the COMAP website and contact Dr. Pancaldi.

John Baez Named Fellow of AMS
Dr. John Baez, UCR - AMS Fellow

The math department proudly announces that John Baez has been named a Fellow of the American Mathematical Society, for contributions to higher category theory and mathematical physics, and for popularization of these subjects.

UCR Mathematics in Curriculum Innovation
Learning Lab Riverside, Saddleback, Yuba - A New Math Gateway

The Department of Mathematics at UCR is funded by the Grand Challenge of California Learning Lab for over $1.2million to develop A New Mathematics Gateway. The project’s aim is to re-conceptualize how calculus is taught and to open a wide and inclusive STEM gateway. The materials developed under this project will be shared as Open Educational Resources to benefit all students and educators. Over ten faculty members from three different higher education institutes participate in developing this project. Project PI is Dr.  Yat Sun Poon (UCR Mathematics), Project Director and co-PI is Dr. David Weisbart (UCR Mathematics). For more information, please visit its website:


UCR Microtutorial 2

The Microtutorials in Mathematics project team at UCR has conceived a new approach to producing a collection of micro-tutorials as supplementary instructional and learning materials. The intent is to assist the students and instructors to connect calculus with applications in various subject matters. The students could use them freely on any topics of their choice.  The videos are produced with follow-up questions to enable instructors to flip their classrooms if desired. For details, please visit its website:

Math Alliance
Math Alliance: Providing educational success to underrepresented and first-generation students is an important part of UCR's mission.

"Our goal is simple: we want to be sure that every underrepresented or underserved American student with the talent and the ambition has the opportunity to earn a doctoral degree in a mathematical or statistical science."

If you are interested in becoming a Math Alliance Scholar, please feel free to contact Dr. Fred Wilhelm. The benefits include access to Math Alliances Facilitated Graduate Applications Process and possible funding to go the the Alliance's Field of Dreams conference.


Angular Momentum in General Relativity
December 01, 2021 @ 4:00 pm
Skye 284
Po-Ning Chen, UCR Abstract: The definition of angular momentum in general relativity has been a subtle issue since the 1960s, due to the 'supertranslation ambiguity'. In this talk, we will discuss how the mathematical theory of quasilocal mass and angular momentum leads to a new definition of angular momentum at null infinity…
The Hessian of heat semigroups and geometric applications
November 17, 2021 @ 11:00 am
Anton Thalmaier (University of Luxembourg) Abstract: We explain some new formulas for the Hessian of the heat semigroup generated by the Laplace-Beltrami operator on a Riemannian manifold and describe geometric applications related to Calderón-Zygmund type inequalities. Our approach relies on probabilistic methods from Stochastic…
