Summary

The San Antonio Riverwalk was overrun by nearly 4000 mathematicians 13 to 16 January at this year's joint meetings of the American Mathematical Society and the Mathematical Association of America. More than 1000 scheduled talks ranged from pure math to some vividly real-world applications, including the behavior of flowing films and the best ways to seed a basketball tournament and send boats down the Colorado River.
