Recent Publications

Dr. Tim Ford, has written a new 
textbook entitles, Separable Algebra.
Due to be published on October 20, 2017,
this book presents a comprehensive
introduction to the theory of separable
algebras over commutative rings.
Azumaya algebras, the henselization of
local rings, and Galois theory are
rigorously introduced and treated.
Essential connections are drawn
between the theory of separable
algebras and Morita theory, the theory
of faithfully flat descent, cohomology,
derivations, differentials, reflexive lattices,
maximal orders, and class groups.

Mini-Math Day

The Department of Mathematical Sciences will host approximately 110 fourth grade students from Henderson School at FAU and Poinciana Elementary School in Boynton Beach on May 4, 2017.

The program will begin with a welcome and a short quiz followed by Dr. Tomas Schonbek's team contest. After lunch, students will be treated to an educational demonstration presented by former science teacher Glen Govertsen. The demonstrations, part of the “Mr. G Science Show,” combines the dynamics of music, lasers, raw eggs, fiber optics and other materials with clear explanations to motivate students in science and mathematics.

Educational mathematics game prizes will be awarded to both individual and team competition winners.

Photos from our events will be posted on our college's Facebook Page. Search for FAU Charles E. Schmidt College of Science and LIKE our page!
