10-20-2013 - Dr Richard Stanley Honored as Lecturer at GSU
Dr Richard Stanley (M.I.T.) was honored by Georgia Southern University on October 17 and 18, 2013 in their Distinguished Lecture Series (DLS) hosted by Martha L Abell, Ph.D. and Interim Dean of the College of Science and Mathematics. ¬†Richard was the 4th DLS recipient selected by the college; his talk on 'Tiling the Plane' is connected to his math area of Combinatorics.
Kenny Young, Rick Tindol and several hundred students attended the reception and 'general audience' talk held on the 17th. ¬†We spent close to an hour (in addition to his talk) with Richard that evening. ¬†We learned that Richard plans to continue teaching at least through the summer of 2014 when he has agreed to impart some of his knowledge at the University of Miami while on loan from MIT.
Congratulations to Richard and thanks to Dr Abell and the college for their outstanding selection.
