The 2002 Clay School on Geometry and String Theory was held at the Isaac
Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Cambridge, UK from 24 March - 20
April 2002. It was organized jointly by the organizers of two concurrent workshops
at the Newton Institute, one on Higher Dimensional Complex Geometry organized
by Alessio Corti, Mark Gross and Miles Reid, and the other on M-theory organized
by Robbert Dijkgraaf, Michael Douglas, Jerome Gauntlett and Chris Hull, in
collaboration with Arthur Jaffe, then president of the Clay Mathematics Institute....

Articles in this volume are based on talks given at the Gauss-Dirichlet Conference held in GÃ¶ttingen on June 20-24, 2005. The conference commemorated the 150th anniversary of the death of C.-F. Gauss and the 200th anniversary of the birth of J.-L. Dirichlet. The volume begins with a definitive summary of the life and work of Dirichlet and continues with thirteen papers by leading experts on research topics of current interest in number theory that were directly influenced by Gauss and Dirichlet.
Diane Ravitch, the noted education historian points out “At every level
of formal education, from nursery school to graduate school, equal opportu-
nity became the overriding goal of postwar7 educational reformers. Some-
times those who led the battles seemed to forget why it was important to
keep students in school longer; to forget that the ﬁght for higher enroll-
ments was part of a crusade against ignorance, and that institutions would
be judged by what their students had learned as well as by how many were
In 1998, the National Research Council
(NRC) established the Committee on
Science and Mathematics Teacher
Preparation (CSMTP) and charged it
with identifying critical issues in existing
practices and policies for K-12
teacher preparation in science and
mathematics. In its Statement of Task,
the NRC’s Governing Board also asked
the committee to identify recommendations
from professional organizations
regarding teacher preparation and the
quality of the K-12 teaching of science
and mathematics and to examine relevant
This is the third volume in the series “Tutorial in Mathematical Biosciences”.
These lectures are based on material which was presented in tutorials or developed
by visitors and postdoctoral fellows of the Mathematical Biosciences
Institute (MBI), at The Ohio State University. The aim of this series is to introduce
graduate students and researchers with just a little background in either
mathematics or biology to mathematical modeling of biological processes.
The first volume was devoted to mathematical neuroscience, which was the
focus of the MBI program in 2002–2003.

The National Research Council was organized by the National Academy of Sciences in 1916 to
associate the broad community of science and technology with the Academy’s purposes of furthering
knowledge and advising the federal government. Functioning in accordance with general policies
determined by the Academy, the Council has become the principal operating agency of both the
National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Engineering in providing services to the
government, the public, and the scientific and engineering communities.
Chapter 8 - Mathematics of finance: An introduction to basic concepts and calculations. In this chapter, you will learn: Differentiate between simple and compound interest rate calculations, differentiate between nominal and effective interest rate calculations, calculate present and future values of cash flows, calculate the yield of a security, calculate the present value of an annuity.
NOTICE: The project that is the subject of this report was approved by the Gov-
erning Board of the National Research Council, whose members are drawn from
the councils of the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Engi-
neering, and the Institute of Medicine. The members of the committee responsible
for the report were chosen for their special competences and with regard for ap-
Difficult tasks are often very simply stated. This committee was asked by
Congress to “conduct a study to assess gender differences in the careers of science,
engineering, and mathematics (SEM) faculty, focusing on four-year institutions of
higher education that award bachelor’s and graduate degrees. The study will build
on the National Academies’ previous work and examine issues such as faculty
hiring, promotion, tenure, and allocation of institutional resources including (but
not limited to) laboratory space.

Over the past several years, scientists, public health officials, and policy
makers have become increasingly interested in understanding how the emergence
and spread of infectious diseases could be affected by environmental factors,
particularly variations in climate. In September 1995 the Institute of Medicine/
National Academy of Sciences and the National Science and Technology Council
held a Conference on Human Health and Global Climate Change.
This book takes a fresh look at programs for advanced studies for high school students in the United States, with a particular focus on the Advanced Placement and the International Baccalaureate programs, and asks how advanced studies can be significantly improved in general. It also examines two of the core issues surrounding these programs: they can have a profound impact on other components of the education system and participation in the programs has become key to admission at selective institutions of higher education.
This issue of Forced Migration Review is about improving communications between
logisticians and programme managers to make such mix-ups a thing of the past. We are
grateful to the Fritz Institute for drawing our attention to the importance of humanitarian
logistics and for the very generous grant which has made this issue possible. We are
deeply indebted to our Guest Editors, Anisya Thomas (Fritz Institute's Managing
Director) and Ricardo Ernst (Georgetown University), and to Lynn Fritz for his
The first panel of our program will
focus on the next generation of
scientists, “Science for All Students.”
We have three panelists participating in this
discussion: Drs. Leon Lederman, Richard Tapia,
and Marcia Linn.
Dr. Lederman is an internationally renowned
high-energy physicist, the Director Emeritus of
Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in
Batavia, Illinois. He holds an appointment as
the Pritzker Professor of Science at Illinois
Institute of Technology in Chicago.
Five years after the meeting "Quaternionic Structures in Mathematics and
Physics", which took place at the International School for Advanced Studies
(SISSA), Trieste, 5-9 September 1994, we felt it was time to have another meeting
on the same subject to bring together scientists from both areas.
The second Meeting on Quaternionic Structures in Mathematics and Physics
was held in Rome, 6-10 September 1999.
The Institute for Mathematical Sciences at the National University of
Singapore was established on 1 July 2000 with funding from the Ministry
of Education and the University. Its mission is to provide an international
center of excellence in mathematical research and, in particular, to promote
within Singapore and the region active research in the mathematical
sciences and their applications. It seeks to serve as a focal point for scientists
of diverse backgrounds to interact and collaborate in research through
tutorials, workshops, seminars and informal discussions....
Nowadays, there are many methods to study shoreline change in coastal engineering. Among them, mathematical methods are considered as effective ones that have been used for a long time. LITPACK is a numerical model in MIKE software package, developed by Danish Hydraulic Institute (DHI), for simulating non‐cohesive sediment transport in wave and currents, littoral drift, coastline evolution and profile development along ...
