Welcome to the MSU Denver Mathematics Club!

Mandelbrot SetOur Mission:

To facilitate learning and enjoyment in the field of mathematics, while creating a sense of community and involvement for MSU Denver mathematics students. We seek to involve students and faculty in further mathematical learning and education, and provide students with opportunities for advanced learning outside of the classroom.

What we do:

The Mathematics Club is always looking for new and exciting activities. Currently we have monthly talks on various subjects in Mathematics, given by local professionals, professors and students. These talks include pizza, snacks, free books, and good conversation, and are held the first Friday of the month at 2:30 pm in Science 1011, unless otherwise noted. 

How do I join? 

If you hear about a math club event, just drop by and join the group!

Abstract:

This presentation will review the notion of equivalence relations on sets and provide some examples of what the resulting collection of equivalence classes appear as, with a focus on geometry (and some topology).

Info about Kenneth Prevot:

Dr. Kenneth Prevot received his BA in mathematics from Rice University and his PhD in mathematics from MIT.  He has been on the MSU Denver faculty since 2001.  Prior to joining the mathematics faculty, he spent twenty-one years in telecommunications R&D with AT&T BELL LABS and various spin-offs focusing on mathematical modeling.  He has also taught at the University of Texas, San Antonio, the University of Tennessee, and the University of Colorado, Denver.
