# Identifiability and Inference for Phylogenetic Networks using Applied Algebraic Geometry

Assistant Professor Elizabeth Gross has been awarded a CAREER grant from NSF in the amount of $464,828. Some more details can be found here: Identifiability and Inference for Phylogenetic Networks using Applied Algebraic Geometry.

She previously studied *Computational algebraic geometry and combinatorial algorithms for neuroscience and biological networks* under another NSF award.

# Logic Seminar Spring 2020

The logic seminar for Spring 2020 will be held Fridays at 2:30–3:20pm, room TBA.

The logic seminar for Fall 2019 was held Wednesdays at 2:30–3:20pm in Keller 314.

If you are interested in the seminar, please let Kameryn Williams know to be added to the mailing list.

The Department of Mathematics at University of Hawaii at Manoa has long had an informal graduate program in logic, lattice theory, and universal algebra (People, Courses, Description) going back to Alfred Tarski’s 1963 student William Hanf.

We are offering the following course rotation (courses mostly repeating after two years):

Spring 2016 | MATH 649 | Applied Model Theory | Ross |

Fall 2016 | MATH 654 | Graduate Introduction to Logic | Beros |

Spring 2017 | MATH 657 | Computability and Complexity | Khan |

Fall 2017 | course break | - | - |

Spring 2018 | MATH 649 | Applied Model Theory | Ross |

Fall 2018 | MATH 654 | Graduate Introduction to Logic | Kjos-Hanssen |
