Math's Bill Dunham Receives Awards from Mathematical Association of America

September 7, 2022

Bill Dunham, a visiting professor and research associate in the Mathematics Department, has received two awards from the Mathematical Association of America for expository excellence. 

He received the Halmos-Ford Award for the article "Euler and the Cubic Basel Problem," published in The American Mathematical Monthly in 2021 and the Chauvenet Prize for "The Early (and Peculiar) History of the Möbius Function," which appeared in Mathematics Magazine in 2018.

In his remarks on receiving the awards, Dunham mentioned Bryn Mawr's Collier Science Library: "On its shelves, I have found Euler’s mathematical works, some fascinating 19th-century journals, and volumes inscribed by faculty superstars like Charlotte Angas Scott and Emmy Noether. It is a treat to graze through the remarkable collections at Bryn Mawr."
