Dear Math Students,

Next Tuesday Nov. 8, Fields Medalist Stephen Smale will be giving a talk to the mathematics students here, both undergraduate and graduate, in the Adel Sedra Auditorium (BA1160). It will start at 2:10p.m., with refreshments to be served at 2:00p.m. Prof. Smale will be giving an exposition on ‘Smale’s Problems’. This is a compilation of 18 important open problems for 21st-century mathematicians to keep in mind, just like those of Hilbert that were proposed for the 20th century.

For more information on Smale’s Problems, check out:
