Dear colleagues,

As you know, Karl Menger was an outstanding mathematician on the  
faculty of IIT for many years.  His family donated money to establish  
a lecture series in his honor.  On April 9-11, our department will  
host the inaugural Remembering Menger event.  Please check the website


for details.

o The main event will be on Monday, April 9, featuring the Karl  
Menger Memorial Lecture by Karl Sigmund.  Afterward we will present  
the Karl Menger Award for exceptional scholarship by a student.

o Karl Sigmund will also meet the Math Club for lunch and later give  
a talk on Wednesday afternoon aimed at graduate students.

I hope to see you at the talks by Karl Sigmund.

Best regards,

Fred J. Hickernell, Professor and Chair
Department of Applied Mathematics, Illinois Institute of Technology
