As part of the CMS Student Committee’s initiative to coordinate with FUN, we are hosting an event as part of the CMS Studc Fields Trip. We are planning a few morning activities while the CMS Studc is putting together the afternoon activities.
The morning session includes a short meet and greet with Professor Fraser and some of the other student attendants of the larger CMS Winter Meeting. Following this will be a short recap on all the events up to date held by FUN as well as some announcements of future directions.
Professor Fraser readily agreed to give a talk and answer questions about his talk on the History of Complex Analysis. Please review the abstract and consider the following references,

Hope to see you there!
