Tech's School of Mathematics is a big part of the Constructive Functions 2014 Conference to be held May 26-30, 2014 at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. Professor Doron Lubinsky is a member of the organizing and scientific committees and Professor Jeff Geronimo is on the scientific committee for the conference. School of Mathematics alumnus, Professor Douglas Hardin, is also an organizer of this conference.
The focus of this conference is on all aspects of constructive function theory, from asymptotics to zero distribution and on minimum energy problems on manifolds.
This year, the conference will honor the 70th birthday of Ed Saff. In 2004, the School of Mathematics hosted the Constructive Functions Tech-04 Conference honoring Ed Saff's 60th birthday. The topics and broad international involvement in this conference reflect Ed's seminal contributions to these areas of research as well as his career long efforts to build connections between mathematical communities around the world.
