2018 Maurice Auslander International Conference

2018 Maurice Auslander Distinguished Lectures

& International Conference

The 2018 Maurice Auslander Distinguished Lectures and International Conference will be held at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, Quissett Campus in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, USA on April 25-30, 2018.

Maurice Auslander (1926 – 1994) was an influential mathematician widely known for introducing, together with David Buchsbaum, homological methods in commutative ring theory and for his creation, together with Idun Reiten, of Auslander-Reiten theory. In the last decades, Auslander’s work has gained considerable traction in the many fields that are applying and using Auslander-Reiten theory.

This year the distinguished speaker will be Amnon Neeman of Australian National University in Canberra. Professor Neeman has made fundamental contributions to several branches of mathematics, including homological algebra, algebraic geometry, and algebraic K-theory and is especially well-known for his work on triangulated categories.

The Auslander Conference is the world-largest annual event in representation theory of algebras. It is sponsored by Bernice Auslander, Northeastern University and the National Science Foundation.
