Richard Ball Scholarly Lectures

The purpose of these annual public lectures is to stimulate mathematical research among students at the University of Denver, particularly graduate students transitioning from coursework to research. An award is given to one or more students for their analysis and presentation of a mathematics research paper.

The award was established by a generous donation from mathematics alum Dr. Aditya Nagrath and Elephant Learning. It honors emeritus professor Richard Ball, a long-term faculty member and chair of the Department of Mathematics.
