One of the striking phenomena of the twenty-first century is the increasing use of advanced mathematics in almost every field of human endeavor.

Mathematics is the science of quantity, space, and structure. It is the most fundamental of all sciences. Our Mathematics students find that they can increase their problem solving and analytical skills in preparation for a wide variety of careers. Mathematical study also provides an appreciation of one of the most beautiful and useful of all human sciences.

    This page provides an overview of the remarkable work of Scott W. Williams, PhD, Emeritus Professor, UB Mathematics.  Dr. Williams joined our faculty in 1971, as Assistant Professor of Mathematics. In 1975, Dr. Williams was the first topologist to apply the concept of scales (now known as b=d) to give a partial solution of the famous Box Product problem, which is still unsettled today. Among many accomplishments, Dr. Williams is a founder of Black and Third World Mathematicians which, in 1971, became the National Association of Mathematicians. In 1982, he won the New York Chancellor Award for Excellence in Teaching, and was promoted to Full Professor a few years later.
