On Sunday June 15 the Department of Mathematics at Bar-Ilan University is holding a 1-day meeting in honour of Steve Shnider's retirement. This is a satellite meeting of the Second Joint AMS-IMU Meeting being held at Bar-Ilan and Tel Aviv Universities June 16-19. Part of the meeting is joint with the Conference on Quantum Groups, Deformations and Geometry in memory of Joseph Donin, who worked extensively with Steve.
Steve's mathematical career spans over 40 years (he received his PhD from Harvard in 1972). In this time he has done research in many different areas of mathematics with many collaborators from all over the world, all of whom know him as a careful, deep-thinking scientist with remarkably broad interests.
All talks will be held in the seminar room on the top floor of the math building - building 216, room 201. Tentative schedule (please check back closer to the date for changes, titles etc):
On Tuesday evening June 17 there will be an informal dinner event. Larry Zalcman's comments at the dinner
Meeting parcipitants might also be interested in the Amitsur Symposium on June 15 at Bar-Ilan. And for sure look at the program of the Second Joint AMS-IMU Meeting to be held at Bar-Ilan and Tel Aviv Universities June 16-19.
