            More than 200 of the world’s top math scholars will spend a week at Texas A&M University-Kingsville discussing their research on a fundamental mathematical element during the International Conference on the Theory, Methods and Applications of Nonlinear Equations December 17-21.

            Scholars representing dozens of diverse nations will present their research on non-linear equations—a mathematical measure that does not include simple Xs and Ys. When charted, these equations do not graph in a straight line. Each day will include sessions and panel discussions.

            Dr. Ravi Agarwal, chair of the A&M-Kingsville math department, has organized the conference, which will unite researchers with a global perspective, from China to Russia, Japan to Spain and Saudi Arabia to India.

            “The main aim of the conference is to promote, encourage and bring together researchers in the field of nonlinear equations,” Agarwal said. “A special emphasis will be on the applications of nonlinear equations. It will be a mathematically enriching and socially exciting event.”

           The conference kicks off at 9 a.m. Monday, December 17 with an opening ceremony in Jones Auditorium. Each conference day includes sessions and discussions beginning at 9 a.m.-9:30 a.m. and ending at 6:30 p.m. The general public is invited to attend the sessions for free.
