faculty/staff NEWS

Dalibor Froncek, professor, Department of Mathematics and Statistics, presented a talk “Decompositions of complete bipartite graphs into (0,/j/)-prisms” (a joint work with Fulbright junior scholar Sylwia Cihacz) at the 43rd Czech-Slovak Conference on Combinatorics and Graph Theory, Zadov, Czech Republic.

Lavendar Magazine did a story on Angie Nichols, GLBTA Services Director, in their June 9, 2008 issue. Nichols was featured for her work to make UMD an inclusive and welcoming environment for GLBTA students.

John Pastor, professor, Department of Biology, recently published Mathematical Ecology of Populations and Ecosystems, an introductory textbook on mathematical ecology for advanced undergraduate and graduate students. The text, published by Wiley-Blackwell, shows how to bridge the sub-disciplines of population ecology and ecosystem ecology by using the mathematical theory of dynamical systems.

Two mixed-medium prints by Robert Repinski, associate Professor Department of Art and Design, have been selected for inclusion in the 16th Annual MacRostie Juried Exhibition. Juror Rachel Melis of St. John’s University chose the work from entries by artists residing in the five-state upper Midwest. The show will be on view during the month of August at the MacRostie Art Center in Grand Rapids.
In another project, Repinski is participating in the third Biennial collaboration between the Northern Printmakers Alliance and the Lake Superior Writers to produce a collection of poems paired with original printed images which will be published by Calyx Press in book form as Trail Guide: A Northland Experience in Prints and Poetry in late summer/early fall.
Repinski is also curating an exhibition entitled “Visible Means” which opens at the Morrison Gallery of the Duluth Art Institute on August 28 and features work that addresses gay, lesbian, bi and transgender experience in a variety of contexts. Both local and nationally recognized artists will be represented in the exhibition which will hang through mid-November.
