Two Department of Mathematical Sciences faculty members, Irene Fonseca and Konstantin Tikhomirov were invited to give presentations at the 2022 International Congress of Mathematicians (ICM), held virtually in July.

The ICM, hosted every four years by the International Mathematics Union, is the largest and most prominent gathering of mathematicians. Being an invited speaker is one of the highest honors for a mathematician. We congratulate Irene and Konstantin!

Irene Fonseca, the Kavčić-Moura University Professor of Mathematics and director of the Center for Nonlinear Analysis, was invited to present during the partial differential equations track. Her talk focused on variational models for phase separation in heterogeneous media.

Tikhomirov, an associate professor of mathematical sciences, was invited to present within the combined  the analysis and combinatorics tracks. In his talk he discussed recent developments in the study of quantitative invertibility in the non-Hermitian setting and reviewed some application of this research.
