    Mathematics Professor Tadashi Tokieda is featured in an article from the May 2, 2018 issue of the Stanford Report.  Professor Tokieda first came to Stanford as a Poincaré Distinguished Visiting Professor 2015-16. He joined the faculty as a Professor of Mathematics at Stanford in 2017.   Professor Tokieda has developed a reputation for using toys to explore and demonstrate surprising outcomes when we rely on assumptions about math and physics.

Come celebrate the accomplishments of our students at the Mathematics Department commencement ceremony June 17, 2018
  The Mathematics Department, in conjunction with the Statistics and Mathematical & Computer Science Departments, will be conferring diplomas to this year’s graduates on Sunday, June 17, 2018, immediately following the University’s ceremony.  The Mathematics diploma ceremony will take place in the oak grove between Sequoia Hall and Sloan Hall at 12:30pm.  No tickets for admission are required.
