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: Spring 2018, Thursdays, Blocker 506A, 4:00-4:50 PM

Next Talk

Speaker:   Amudhan Krishnaswamy-Usha  

Title:   Simultaneous Upper Triangularization

Time / Date:   4:00 - 5:00 , February 1


Given two matrices, when can you find a basis with respect to which they are both upper triangular? I will present a nice classical result due to Heydar Radjavi which provides a characterisation using the trace. If time permits, I will talk about the problem in the case of operators.
