  • Professor Hanfeng Li named to AMS 2021 Class of Fellows
    11/3/20
    The University at Buffalo Department of Mathematics is pleased to announce that the American Mathematical Society has named Professor Hangfeng Li a member of the 2021 Class of Fellows. The international honor places Professor Li among the world's outstanding mathematicians for his contributions to algebraic dynamics and operator algebras. He joined UB Mathematics in 2005, and is currently teaching MTH 424/524, “Survey of Fourier Series Methods”. His main research interest is on noncommutative geometry and dynamical systems, especially connections between operator algebras and dynamical systems. Professor Li's recent work concentrates on actions of countable sofic groups and algebraic actions of general countable (amenable) groups. Read the article by Charlotte Hsu.
  • Giacomo Scilla wins the 2023 Summer Math Scholarship
