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 2015, Thursdays, Blocker 506A, 4:00-4:50 PM

Speaker:   Kaitlyn Phillipson  

Title:   A Brief Introduction to Gröbner Bases and an Application to Graph Theory

Time / Date:   4:00 - 5:00 , October 15


This talk will be a crash course in Gröbner Bases, explaining the motivation behind them, how to compute them, and some applications in other areas of mathematics and the real world. With time remaining, I will discuss the application of Gröbner bases in my students' summer research project as part of the PURE Math Program.
