State of Jefferson Mathematics Congress

Although the boundaries of the State of Jefferson have eluded political demarcation, it is generally agreed that this region encompasses sizable portions of northern California and southern Oregon and sometimes includes a thin strip of northwestern Nevada. As early as 1852 and as recently as 1941, bonds of common interests and mutual disenchantments prompted serious attempts to establish the Sate of Jefferson as a political reality. Traces of those endeavors remain. Since 1972 mathematicians from this region, in an endeavor to overcome the geographical isolation of their institutions from other centers of mathematical activity, have been meeting annually to share and discuss current ideas on mathematics, applications, and curricular directions.
