Congratulations Jordan! This is a great addition to your already long list of awards and recognitions, very well deserved!
Gurevich and Howe speak at Institute for Advanced Study (IAS) on breakthrough in theory of small symmetries of spaces
On March 8 2017, Prof. Shamgar Gurevich (UW-Madison) and his collaborator Prof. Roger Howe (Yale and Texas A&M) presented at a seminar talk at IAS - Princeton. Videos are now available here...
Their recent discovery of a notion of “size” for symmetries of spaces, and their new discovery called “eta correspondence” to describe explicitly “small" symmetries. In their research process, Gurevich and Howe benefit a lot from the work of Prof. John Cannon (Sydney) and Dr. Steve Goldstein (UW-Madison) who produced a lot of numerical data, leading to the discovery of the "eta correspondence”.

Dima Arinkin has been named as Vilas Associate. The Vilas Associate program is an internal competition that recognizes new and ongoing research of the highest quality and significance. And Dima is, of course, the perfect example!
Steven Sam is having an astonishing year! if you remember he just got awarded a CAREER grant, and the Sloan Foundation just announced he will also receive the Sloan fellowship! Warmest congratulations to him, so very well deserved!
