Mathematicians descend on Texas A&M at Qatar
The workshop examined developments in geometry concepts, such as CR manifolds, the geometry of several complex variables, and closely related areas, including the theory of over-determined systems of partial differential equations.
“These events are a great opportunity to lay the groundwork for international collaborations,” Nordine Mir, professor of mathematics in the science program at Texas A&M at Qatar, said. “The workshop series also helps in building exposure for the Qatar research enterprise and therefore contributes to Qatar National Research Strategy.”
Mir organized the event with the help of Shiferaw Berhanu of Temple University and Emil Straube of Texas A&M University. It was sponsored by Texas A&M at Qatar, the College of Science and the Department of Mathematics at Texas A&M University and QAPCO (Qatar Petrochemical Company).
“A conference of this caliber adds substantial further visibility to the science program at Texas A&M at Qatar and to Qatar as the Middle East research hub,” Straube said. “The workshop was designed to spark mutually beneficial collaborations between mathematicians in the region and colleagues in Europe, Brazil, Japan and the U.S.”
