5th Lecture of the Richard E. Block Distinguished Lecture in Mathematics Series
M. Susan Montgomery, USC - UCR Block Lecture Series

This year the Block Distinguished Lecturer will be M. Susan Montgomery, Professor of Mathematics at the University of Southern California. The lecture will take place May 25th in Skye Hall 284 at 4:00 p.m. Dr. Montgomery's lecture will be "Orthogonal representations: from groups to Hopd algebras to tensor categories". The Block Lecture Series is chaired by Dr. Vyjayanthi Chari of the UCR Mathematics Department.

The abstract is available on the poster here.

Lawrence Mouille

Congratulations to our 2020 Alum Lawrence Mouillé, who was awarded a 2022 NSF Postdoctoral Fellowship to work at Syracuse University with Lee Kennard. Lawrence's thesis, titled Positive Intermediate Ricci Curvature with Symmetries, is available here.

COMAP 2022

Looking to put your knowledge of mathematics to the test on an international level by solving real world modeling problems? Then consider participating in this year's COMAP (Consortium for Mathematics and its Applications) ( on February 17-21, 2022. COMAP is an international mathematical modeling competition that’s completely online, teamwork based (up to 3 students per group) and open to all college students.

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 $1.2 million 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.

Skye 284
M. Susan Montgomery, USC Orthogonal representations: from groups to Hopd algebras to tensor categories Let G be a finite group and V a finite dimensional representation of G over the complex numbers. According to a wonderful theorem of Frobenius and Schur from 1906, there are only three possibilities for V: V has a non-…
Positive Curvature and Discrete Abelian Symmetries
May 18, 2022 @ 12:00 pm
Skye Hall 268
Catherine Searle, Wichita State University Positively curved manifolds are notoriously hard to classify. In the early 90's, based on the observation that the few known examples are all highly symmetric, Karsten Grove proposed his "Symmetry Program" which suggests trying to classify such manifolds with the additional hypothesis of…
