The 2014 Southern California Probability Symposium will be held at IPAM on Saturday December 6th.

This fall, Donald Martin (faculty emeritus), was elected into the 2015 class of Fellows of the American Mathematical Society "for contributions to mathematical logic, especially proofs and applications of determinacy, as well as service to the profession."

"The field of mathematics uses patterns, reasoning and other concepts to solve problems. Subjects include pure and applied mathematics, statistics and probability. Students interested in mathematics can explore these top-notch universities from around the world...

**UCLA Math ranks 4th!**

#### "The Department of Mathematics at the University of California offers different mathematics specializations to cater to students’ interests. Mathematicians who are strictly interested in theory may choose the mathematics major, while engineering and industrial enthusiasts follow applied mathematics.

There are many questions about the gaps between consecutive prime numbers which are not completely solved, even after decades of effort. For instance, the twin prime conjecture, which asserts that the gap between primes can equal 2 infinitely often, remains open.
