EIU: Then and Now - A Photographic Treasury |
Join us for a ride in Eastern's "Wayback" machine. Fifty years ago, Professor of Botany Dr. Hiram Thut gave an illustrated talk entitled “EIU; Then and Now” to students in Pemberton Hall. The archived slides (now digitized) and an audio recording of a 1973 version of that lecture are the basis of this look back at Eastern from its 1899 campus plans through 1969 and today. Retired EIU faculty members Mac Corley, David Maurer, and Terry Weidner will offer commentary during the presentation.
Offered through the Academy of Lifelong Learning; free and open to the public. Registration requested by 11/12/19 at 581-5114.Tags: Academy of Lifelong Learning | Alumni | Community | Current Students | Faculty | Lectures/Seminars
Colloquium of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science |
Speaker: Richard Koss (EIU)
Abstract: We will discuss two descent methods of finding zeros for a function of a complex variable.The topics we discuss will include a way to visually observe the zeros of these functions, two algorithms to acquire these zeros (one of which extends to several complex variables), and a brief history of how these things came about. There will be examples and live demonstrations of the algorithms to illustrate all of these things, and they will be discussed in a manner that should be accessible to anyone. Therefore, the only prerequisite is a desire to see something interesting. This talk will present some of the findings based on joint work with Chad Kelterborn (the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill), Marcin Mazur (Binghamton University), and Bogdan Petrenko (EIU).

Life in Vietnam - A Photographic Exploration: 1965 - 1966 |
Michael Murphy will share photos he took during his tour of duty in the Marines. These photos show life in the country that includes landscapes, people, families moving through villages, soldiers and vehicles, and the ravages of war.
