The math department runs a series of annual presentations aimed at illuminating interdisciplinary connections between mathematics and other areas. We host guest speakers, partner with other departments within the university and invite panelists whose work relates to the presented themes. All presentations are geared toward the general audience. Everyone is invited.
Seminars
The department provides a wide variety of resources to promote collaboration, inclusion and research within our community.
More information can be found about each seminar below the schedule.

Math & Stats Awareness Month
Colloquium
The math department hosts a colloquium series in which distinguished researchers present their recent work to a general mathematical audience. All faculty, graduate students and undergraduate students are welcome.
View a short video about our Colloquium series
Organizer: Jake Fillman
Spring 2023:
 January 20  Kristen Bieda (Michigan State University)
 February 3  Qingguo Hong (Pennsylvania State University)
 March 3  Emily Riehl (Johns Hopkins)
 March 24  Gloria Stillman (Formerly of Australian Catholic University)
 March 31  J. Michael Shaughnessy (Portland State University)
Algebraic Combinatorics Reading Seminar
This seminar meets about once a week. The format is very informal, the idea is that we collectively select a topic for the semester and present material surround that theme. Original research is not typically presented and we encourage participation from all levels. Graduate students with an interest in algebra/combinatorics are especially encouraged to attend.
For more information or to be included in communication regarding this seminar please contact Anton Dochtermann.
Differential Equations and Applied Math Seminar (DEAM)
The Differential Equations and Applied Math Seminar is a seminar for those interested in differential equations, mathematical modeling, mathematical physics, scientific computation, and any other interdisciplinary mathematical work of an applied nature. The speaker's topics are not restricted to their own work, as this seminar is a platform for presenting details of mathematics of interest. Interested faculty, graduate students, and advanced undergraduates are encouraged to attend.
Organizers: Ray Treinen & Jake Fillman
Discrete Math Seminar
All faculty, graduate students, and upper level undergraduate students are welcome. The seminar will provide a platform for faculty and students to present their research developments in discrete mathematics and related areas, foster research interactions among faculty and students, and create research opportunities and collaborations for faculty and students. Speakers from Discrete Mathematics, Combinatorics, Computer Science, and other related areas are all welcome. We are particularly interested in interdisciplinary research which applies mathematics as a tool to solve problems in other areas such as CS, BioInformatics, Bio‐sciences, Engineering, Physics, Chemistry, etc.
Organizer: Jian Shen
Logic@TXST
This is a NSF funded project to increase logic research at Texas State. Part of this project includes a scheduled series of speakers for 2022 and 2023, with a symposium to be included in 2024.
Times and locations of these talks will vary.
Organizer: Will Boney
Math Education Seminar
Faculty and students learn about and discuss issues related to the teaching and learning of mathematics and new findings in mathematics education research. Graduate students in the Mathematics Education programs are expected to attend whenever possible; students from other programs are always welcome.
Organizers: Cody Patterson & Hamilton Hardison
Numerical Methods for Data Science and Engineering (NMDSE)
This seminar is dedicated to sharing and discussing recent discoveries in numerical methods for reallife applications, such as medical imaging, weather forecasting, and epidemiology.
Organizers: Iván OjedaRuiz & Young Ju Lee
Problem Solvers Group
Love a good problem? Like to solve difficult puzzles?
Join professors, graduate students and undergraduates as we tackle problems presented from several mathematical journals. An interest in higher level mathematics is all that is required to join our round table. Offer what you know, learn what you don't in a relaxed environment with some of our department's finest!

Organizers: Tim Chase & Cameron Farnsworth
Statistics Seminar
Interested in Statistics and Data Science?
Join us as we discuss new developments in statistics as well as innovative lessons and advances in statistics education research.
Graduate and undergraduate students are encouraged to attend!

Organizer: Vera Ioudina
Talk Math 2 Me
Talk Math 2 Me is a seminar for students by students. Talk Math 2 Me provides students, both graduate and undergraduate, an opportunity to present anything related to mathematics to an audience of their peers. Undergraduate and Graduate math students or any students interested in mathematics are highly encouraged to attend. The talks are each 15‐60 minutes long and possible speaking topics include Undergraduate and Graduate mathematics research, math history, and STEM research with a heavy footing in mathematics. By presenting, students gain great experience communicating mathematics while developing presentation skills in a relaxed environment. By attending the seminar, students will be introduced to new mathematics and see applications of mathematical concepts in different perspectives. Some weeks will even include visits from professors to discuss how students can get involved with research and the math department.

Organizer: Ellen Couvillon
Topology Seminar
A seminar in topology: geometric, algebraic, general, abstract, combinatorial, and applied. This is a faculty research seminar focused on topology and its applications. Graduate and undergraduate students interested in topology and its applications are welcome to attend.
