Professor speaking at a 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.

Organizer: Jake Fillman

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.

Logic@TXST logo


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

Machine Learning Reading Seminar

In this seminar we learn about the mathematical foundation of this technology and their rapidly expanding use in our world.
All interested faculty, staff, and undergraduate and graduate students are welcome.

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 real-life applications, such as medical imaging, weather forecasting, and epidemiology.

Organizers: Iván Ojeda-Ruiz, Young Ju Lee & Xiaoxi Shen

Talk Math 2 Me

This 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.

Math & Stats Awareness Month

In April, 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.

Organizer:  Joanna Gutt-Lehr
