Will COVID-19 win the Super Bowl in 2021?

An informational poster (PDF) from Prof. Chyba and her team.

A team of University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa researchers will attempt to forecast COVID-19 in Hawaiʻi through modeling based on current data. Led by Department of Mathematics Professor and principal investigator Monique Chyba, the one-year project, which kicked off on July 1, 202, received a $199,000 award from the National Science Foundation.

Graduate & Undergraduate programs in logic

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.

The local logic seminar is on hiatus due to the pandemic.
However, now is a good time to join the international online seminar Computability Theory and Applications.

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