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 2016, Thursdays, Blocker 506A, 4:00-4:50 PM

Next Talk

Speaker:   Sam Scholze  

Title:   Topics in Computational Harmonic Analysis

Time / Date:   4:00 - 5:00 , September 8


In this talk, I will give a brief review of the Fourier transform and Fourier series, and an introduction to basic frame theory. We will then take a look at Gabor frames, and discuss lattice requirements for these frames. Next, we will discuss an uncertainty-type result known as the Balian-Low theorem, and a long-standing open question for Gabor frames, called the HRT conjecture. If time permits, a proof of the Shannon-Whittaker sampling theorem will be presented.
