The University of Maryland’s College of Computer, Mathematical, and Natural Sciences (CMNS) announced the promotion of 14 tenured/tenure-track faculty members, effective July 1, 2018.

Yanir A. Rubinstein, mathematics, joined CMNS in 2012. Rubinstein works on problems in mathematical analysis and partial differential equations, as well as differential geometry, algebraic geometry and convex geometry. His work also touches on the interface of pure and applied mathematics in problems in optimal transport and numerical analysis. He recently co-edited a book titled Directions for Mathematics Research Experience for Undergraduates.

The following promotions can be read here.

Congratulations to our Putnam Exam participants. The University of Maryland Putnam Team was ranked 15th among the 575 competing institutions in the highly competitive Putnam mathematics exam on December 2, 2017.

Congratulations to Aaron George, who ranked 39th and Erik Metz who ranked 81st, and to Jason Zou, Justin Hontz and Pratik Rathore, who were ranked among the top 500 students out of 4,638 participants!

If you are an undergraduate student interested in participating in Putnam or you would like to know more about it, please contact Dr. Ebrahimian at . Interested students meet every Wednesday 4-5:30 pm in the Fall semesters to learn problem solving strategies

Girls Talk Math is a two-week summer day camp hosted by the Department of Mathematics at the University of Maryland. The camp will occur weekdays July 9-20, 2018 from 9:00 am - 4:00 pm. Rising-9th to rising-12th grade students who attend high school within driving distance of the University can apply. Camp activities involve learning mathematics outside of the standard curriculum, attending mini-lectures on math, as well as recording and publishing a podcast about a famous female mathematician. Girls Talk Math at UMD is a sister chapter of the Girls Talk Math program at UNC. Visit their website to learn more about the 2016 and 2017 summer camps.
