Mini-symposium in Honour of Professor Fred Brauer

  • Date: 02/02/2022
  • Time: 14:05



Celebrating Fred Brauer’s 90th Birthday


Prof. Brauer had two mathematical careers, the first at U Wisconsin, Madison (1960-96), where he also served as Department Chair, and the second as an emeritus honourary professor at the University of British Columbia. Fred was an active member of our UBC Mathematical Biology group, and we are greatly saddened to have lost him. At this event, celebrating Fred Brauer’s 90th Birthday, we will come together to honour Fred’s scholarship, mentorship, friendship and legacy.


We welcome short stories, memories, and research highlights from friends and colleagues. If you have something you wish to present, we are taking submissions until January 10th. Please fill out this form
