About us

Welcome to the home page of the Mathematics Graduate Student Organization (MGSO) at Texas A&M University in College Station. The purpose of this organization is to encourage communication among students, faculty, and staff, and contribute to a rich social life in the department through cultural and scientific dialogue. We would also like to provide an environment where students in the mathematics department can practice their presentation skills as well as view the techniques of others. It is our goal to be a source of support and information for all graduate students.

The main activity of the MGSO is the Graduate Student Seminar. This seminar is for grad students, (largely) by grad students: Volunteer to give a talk!

Seminar: Fall 2014, Thursdays, Blocker 506A, 4:00-4:50 PM

Speaker:   Prof. Jacob White  

Title:   Borsuk-Ulam Theorem, Brouwer's Fixed Point Theorem, and combinatorics

Time / Date:   4:00 - 5:00 , October 2

Abstract

First, we indicate how the Borsuk-Ulam theorem can be applied to solve combinatorial problems. Then we indicate how one can use combinatorics to prove Brouwer's Fixed Point Theorem, and if time permits, indicate how one might prove the Borsuk-Ulam theorem.
