PURDUE UNIVERSITY NORTH CENTRAL - Westville, Indiana

Dr. Alain Togbe, professor of Mathematics at Purdue University North Central, is spending fall 2010 at "l'institute de Mathematiques de Bordeaux", Universite de Bordeaux I. Specifically he is collaborating with Professor Yuri Bilu of the institute on various projects of Diophantine equations. Dr. Togbe will also attend conferences and visit other universities in France.

Dr. Aaron Warren, Professor of Physics at Purdue University North Central was instrumental in the acquisition of a double horizontal sundial which was recently installed at PNC, in the plaza between the Schwarz and LSF buildings. This sundial was donated by Dr. John Davis as a result of his being awarded the 2009 Sawyer Dialing Prize from the North American Sundial Society (NASS). It is tradition that the prize money be used to support the commissioning of a public sundial. In addition, the sundial's pedestal was partially funded by a donation made by Mr. Frederick W. Sawyer III, President of NASS. The sundial combines two forms of dial, one being the standard horizontal 'garden' sundial, and the other indicating the position of the Sun relative to the stars.     TOP

WABASH COLLEGE - Crawfordsville, Indiana

Professor of Computer Science David Maharry retired this summer. Dave first came to Wabash in 1979 as the director of the computer center and to teach computer programming. He joined the department a decade later after he designed the computer science minor. He also recently completed his second term as chair of the division of mathematics and the natural sciences.

In other news, Assistant Professor Chad Westphal is up for tenure this fall, and the department will be hiring a tenure-track position to replace the one vacated when J.D. Phillips resigned last summer to become the department head at Northern Michigan University.     TOP
