Jean Taylor’s 70th at MoMath

Taylor_Jean_Jan02Friends, mathematicians, scientists, and the public celebrated the 70th birthday of distinguished mathematican Jean Taylor at the Museum of Mathematics in New York City, Saturday evening, September 6, 8-10:30 pm. It was Taylor who proved Plateau’s rules for soap bubbles. I wouldn’t miss it. You can register for $25 (additional donations completely optional and not specifically for Taylor celebration). There was also a little symposium of 5- to 15-minute talks 1 pm Saturday afternoon at the Courant Institute at NYU (photos thanks to Christina Sormani). See comments for well wishes.

    So sorry I can’t come. Happy birthday Jean!!

  2. Aaron Yip:

    Dear Jean,
    Congratulation on reaching another of your milestone.
    Sorry that I cannot come this time but for a “good reason”
    — I have reached one milestone myself by recently becoming a father.
    Hope you and all the others have a memorable time.

    Please pass my warm regards and congratulations to Jean. The European saying is “and many more returns”, but I prefer the Hebrew version “until 120”.

    But I would be glad if you could send her my warmest regards.
