This includes current postdocs and graduate students. To register to attend the lectures (one or both), please click here and complete the simple web registration form.

In 2016, the Mathematics Department at UC San Diego launched the Murray and Adylin Rosenblatt Endowed Lecture Series in Applied Mathematics. The aim of the series is to highlight mathematics and statistics in areas of application. The series features high profile scholars in a range of fields. Each year the series will feature 2-3 speakers delivering lectures in their areas of research, accessible to a fairly broad audience including faculty and graduate students from mathematics and statistics, science, engineering, and economics. For information about last year's 2016 Inaugural Lectures, click here.
The lectures are sponsored by the UC San Diego Mathematics Department and the Office of the Dean of Physical Sciences at UC San Diego.
