UM Student Union Ballroom

New Jewish groups form at Ole Miss

Faculty member Wendy Goldberg began holding Sabbath services in August where about 50 people have been attending. From the faculty and staff group, students formed an official student organization, University of Mississippi Jewish Community, which is holding its first event this weekend.

The UMJC’s inaugural Hanukkah Latke Study Break Party will be held from 2 to 4:30 p.m. Sunday in the Student Union Ballroom. The cost is $5 for nonstudents, while students can attend the party for free. There will be latkes, drinks, games and face painting. (December 2, 2010, Page 1A)

Dalrymple Lecture

A three-legged stool doesn’t wobble. But four-legged stools often teeter because the tips of their legs don’t lie in the same plane. This phenomenon of dependent sets, first theorized 75 years ago, is the focus of the 16th Dalrymple Lecture in Mathematics, set for 5:30 p.m. Friday  at the University of Mississippi. James Oxley, who holds an alumni professorship at Louisiana State University, is to deliver the address, which is free and open to the public in the Student Union Ballroom.

An internationally renowned mathematician from Australia, Oxley earned his doctoral degree from Oxford University. He has published more than 120 research papers in mathematics and authored the book “Matroid Theory,” considered the standard text in the field. Oxley plans to discuss geometry and network theory, as well as matroids, a common theory of dependence that applies to both.
