About Us

"Every year, between September 15 and October 15, the United States of America celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month. During this period of time, we celebrate the Hispanic Culture and the great contributions of American citizens of Hispanic descent.

This year, the American Mathematical Society is showcasing the contributions of 31 Hispanic and Latino Mathematicians, one each day from September 15, 2016 to October 15, 2016. Every day at midnight, the mathematician of the day will be revealed. A paragraph describing each mathematician’s research, a short bio and a statement made by the featured mathematician about Latin@s and Hispanics in science will also be revealed."
