Mathematics is an amazing and beautiful intellectual creation, one
of the human race's deepest endeavors. The world around us, and the
future world we are creating, is woven through with mathematics — from
the symmetry groups of Navajo weavings, to the airflow around a
flapping bird’s wing, to the security of global computer
networks. Topology, geometry, prime numbers, probability. Mathematics
is full of unsolved problems and mind-bending concepts and the Mathematics
Department at Dartmouth is a place to learn about and investigate

|Professor Carolyn Gordon is a member of the inaugural class of the Association for Women in Mathematics Fellows Program. This program recognizes Professor Gordon and other mathematicians for their “unwavering commitment to promoting and supporting women in mathematics”, honoring their sustained work in support of the AWM mission.
This summer the Math Department hosted the 30th International Conference on
Formal Power Series and Algebraic Combinatorics. Over 230 participants
from 25 different countries came to Hanover for a week full of lectures,
two poster sessions, a local excursion, and a lobster banquet.
Sergi Elizalde, chair of the organizing committee, would like to thank
Tracy Moloney and Amy Potter for their invaluable help with the conference.
