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 2017, Thursdays, Blocker 628, 4:00-4:50 PM

Speaker:   Luther Rinehart  

Title:   Algebraic Quantum Mechanics

Time / Date:   4:00 - 5:00 , September 21

Abstract

I will give an overview of the algebraic formulation of quantum mechanics, including how certain concepts from the standard formulation are realized in the algebraic setting. Topics include mixed and pure states, spectra and eigenstates, measurement, quantization, and representation theory and the Gelfand-Naimark-Segal theorem.
