The University of North Dakota's Ed Nelson Memorial Lecture Series will be held on TODAY, Oct. 30, in the Education building, Room 7, at 3:30 p.m.

Dale R. Buske, a professor at St. Cloud State University, will give a presentation titled, "Simple, yet Complex, Iteration."

This presentation intends to shed light on the dynamics of conformal automorphisms of the (complex) unit disk under repeated iteration. The characterization stems from a 2005 paper of Choi and Latremoliere investigating C* crossed-products. The presentation will also demonstrate how to generate better graphics.

Due to most of the presentation consisting of figures, examples and a colorful applet, very little mathematical background will be required to appreciate the beauty of the dynamics. Refreshments will be served at 3 p.m.

About Dale Buske:

Buske is a professor of mathematics and former department chair at St. Cloud State University. He graduated from Iowa State University and is the older mathematical "brother" of UND Mathematics Professor Ryan Zerr, meaning both Buske and Zerr received their doctorate from the same advisor.
