Math Candidate Presentation
Math candidate, Upasana Kashyap, will give a presentation on "Operator Spaces--A Noncommutative Phenomenon" on Friday, March 27 at 3:30 p.m. in SC 336. All science students and faculty are invited to attend.
The presentation will be about operator spaces, a new area of research most commonly knwn as noncommutative functional analysis. Operator spaces are noncommutative variants of Banach spaces. It is regarded as the appropriate category to study problems concerning spaces or algebras of operators on Hilbert space arising in noncommutative mathematics.
Environmental Interpretation Internship
ENVIRONMENTAL INTERPRETATION INTERNSHIP: A temporary, full-time position. Pay: Up to $3,000 depending on qualifications and calendar span of the internship. Dates: 12 weeks of work over 13 weeks, May 18 - August 14, 2009.

Qualifications: Environmental science/studies, education or interpretation majors who have successfully completed two years of undergraduate studies. First Aid and CPR certification is desirable. Applicants should have an interest in working with children of all ages. Some education experience desired.
Duties: Baltimore Woods Nature Center (BWNC) is a private, non-profit organization that seeks to transform individuals and communities through place-based education.
