The 2016 Maurice Auslander International Conference will be held at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, Quissett Campus in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, USA on April 27-May 2, 2016.
Maurice Auslander was an influential mathematician widely known for introducing, together with David Buchsbaum, homological methods in commutative ring theory and for his creation, together with Idun Reiten, of Auslander-Reiten theory. In the twenty first century, Auslander’s work has gained considerable impact on the many fields that are applying and using Auslander-Reiten theory. This year the distinguished speaker will be Henning Krause from Bielefeld University. Henning Krause met Maurice as a young Postdoc and continues to be one of the many supporters of the legacy of Maurice Auslander. His mathematics and his often abstract, functorial style, were largely influenced by the same beautiful style of Maurice Auslander. The Auslander Conference is a very successful yearly event sponsored by Bernice Auslander, Northeastern University and the National Science Foundation.
