On **Friday, April 15, 2016**, the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University at Albany, SUNY, will host its fifth **Maheshwari Colloquium**, endowed in honor of Man Mohan and Asha Devi Maheshwari by Raj Maheshwari, ’83.

The speaker will be **Michael Christ**, Professor of Mathematics at the University of California, Berkeley, and the title of his lecture will be:

“Sharpened Inequalities for the Fourier Transform via Additive Combinatorics”

The colloquium will begin at 4:00 p.m. in Lecture Center 19 (directions).

Refreshments will be served from 3:15 p.m. just outside the auditorium.

Michael Christ is Professor of Mathematics at UC Berkeley. He earned his B.S. from Harvey Mudd College and his Ph.D. from the University of Chicago, and has served on the faculties of Princeton University and UCLA. He has received several honors and awards, including an NSF Presidential Young Investigator Award, a Sloan Fellowship in 1986, the 1997 Bergman Prize from the AMS, a Miller Research Professorship for 2000–2001, and a Distinguished Teaching Award by the Office of Educational Development at UC Berkeley in 2004. He has been an invited lecturer twice at the International Congress of Mathematicians, first in Kyoto in 1990 and then in Berlin in 1998. In 2007 he was elected a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. His principal areas of research are harmonic analysis, partial differential equations, and complex analysis in several variables.
