Carolina Dynamics Annual Meeting in Chapel Hill

The 11th annual meeting of Carolina Dynamics was held in Chapel Hill April 12-14, funded by an NSF grant led by Prof. Jane Hawkins, and with additional support from the Department of Mathematics, drawing a variety of speakers from across the nation. Though not a full conference in his honor, the meeting focused some of the talks on the topic of symbolic dynamics as a professional nod to the work and career of Prof. Karl Petersen, who is celebrating his 70th birthday in June, including a few of his former students, postdocs, and collaborators.

At least 12 conference participants appearing in the photo obtained degrees from Carolina, with at least 6 of them now full professors in Mathematics departments around the country.

Congratulations to both Jane and Karl for this wonderful workshop event.
