The Albert Turner Bharucha-Reid Lecture

What is the "NAM Albert Turner Bharucha-Reid Lecture" Series?

The Albert Turner Bharucha-Reid Lecture series was inaugurated in 1994 during NAM's year-long "Twenty Fifth Year Observance." It is named in honor of Albert Turner Bharucha-Reid (November 13, 1927 -- February 26, 1985), an internationally recognized mathematician on random polynomials. The inaugural lecture was given by Professor Tepper Gill of Howard University who had written his Ph.D. dissertation under the direction of Professor Bharucha-Reid. The Lecture is to be given annually at the Faculty Conference on Research and Teaching Excellence (FCRTE).
