ARTHUR PANCOE, BENEFACTOR AND FRIEND OF NU MATHEMATICS PASSED AWAY JAN 16, 2023Jan 18, 2023
Arthur Pancoe, benefactor and longtime friend of the mathematics department, died on Jan 16, 2023 at the age of 97. Arthur Pancoe received a Masters degree in mathematics at Northwestern after returning from service in the Pacific in the second world war. In 1995, Arthur and Gladys Pancoe endowed the Pancoe Chair of Mathematics. In 1997 Arthur gave a colloquium talk in our department, titled “Some Reflections on Mathematics, Technical Analyses and the Efficient Market Theory”. He was a philanthropist and generous donor to Northwestern. In 2003, the Arthur and Gladys Pancoe NSUHS Life Sciences Pavilion was opened at Northwestern and dedicated to his granddaughter Beth Elise Pancoe.
The Pancoe Chair is currently held by Prof. Zhihong Jeff Xia who wrote, “Art was a very dedicated professional and passionate person. I have a lot of fond memories of the times my wife and I spent together with him and his wife Hap. We will miss him greatly.”

NU MATH PROF. BRYNA KRA'S WORK FEATURED IN QUANTA MAGAZINE
Dec. 7, 2022
Prof. Bryna Kra's work on resolving an old conjecture of Erdős has been written up in a December 2022 article in Quanta Magazine. "Over the past few years, four mathematicians — Bryna Kra, Joel Moreira, Florian Richter and Donald Robertson — have developed Furstenberg’s techniques to find not just arbitrarily long progressions within any set containing a positive fraction of the integers, but infinite versions of structures called sumsets" (Leila Sloman).
PROF. AUFFINGER ELECTED 2023 FELLOW OF AMS
Nov 9, 2022
NU Mathematics faculty member, Prof. Antonio Auffinger, has been elected a 2023 Fellow of the American Mathematical Society. Auffinger was cited for his “contributions to probability theory, mathematical physics, and, in particular, to the study of spin glasses and percolation theory”. The AMS, founded in 1888 to further the interests of mathematical research and scholarship, serves the national and international community through its publications, meetings, advocacy and other programs.
