Glimpses of Mathematics, Now and Then: A Celebration of Karen Uhlenbeck's 80th Birthday

Steve Bradlow, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Georgios Daskalopoulos, Brown University
Antonella Grassi, University of Pennsylvania/Università di Bologna
Dan Freed, University of Texas, Austin

Karen Uhlenbeck’s landmark theorems on minimal surfaces, gauge theory, and integrable systems are cornerstones of geometric analysis.  In this conference we explored how the different fields on which Karen has left her mark have evolved through time.  We also celebrated her role as a mentor and
advocate for women and underrepresented minorities in our profession.
