Yamabe Lecture

The 2024 Yamabe Lecturer will be William Minicozzi of MIT, who will give talks on April 24 and April 25, 2024.

The Yamabe Memorial Lecture was initiated jointly by Northwestern University and the University of Minnesota in 1962. At Northwestern, the Yamabe Lectures are given every two years by a prominent mathematician working in a field related to Yamabe’s work.  In the alternate years, the University of Minnesota holds the Yamabe Memorial Symposium.
