Heads up, Humboldt:
While the county's masking mandate has been lifted, Public Health is still strongly recommending masking indoors in public, social distancing and "avoiding crowds and poorly ventilated spaces." COVID-19 is still with us, so be sure to check the protocols at event venues.


Harry S. Kieval Lecture

When: Fri., Oct. 14, 7 p.m. 2022

Dr. Pamela E. Harris, Professor of Mathematics at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, will deliver the 78th semi-annual Harry S. Kieval Lecture at Cal Poly Humboldt on Friday, October 14. The lecture will be at 7:00 p.m. in Room 135 of the Science-B Building on the Cal Poly Humboldt campus. The public is welcome to this free lecture, which is geared toward a general audience. The title of the lecture is "How to Choose Your Own Mathematical Adventures". Dr. Harris will explore answers to questions such as “What is mathematical research?”, “How does a mathematician find problems to work on?” and “How does one build mathematical collaborations?”. She will share her journey to research mathematics, what it entails, how she has developed new research ideas, and how she has found her own place within the mathematical community. Mathematical topics to be discussed include lattice point visibility, parking functions, and a connection between vector partition functions and juggling. No prior mathematical background on these topics is expected nor assumed. All that is needed is the willingness to wonder and ask the question: “what happens if …?”.
