Title:  On the Gevrey Ultradifferentiability of Weak Solution of an Abstract Evolution Equation with a Scalar Type Spectral Operator



Found are conditions on a scalar type spectral operator A in a complex Banach space necessary and sufficient for all weak solutions of the evolution equation

y′(t) = Ay(t), t ≥ 0,

to be strongly Gevrey ultradifferentiable of order β ≥ 1, in particular analytic or entire, on [0,∞) or (0,∞). Certain inherent smoothness improvement effects are analyzed. It is shown that, if all weak solutions are Gevrey ultradifferentiable of orders 0 ≤ β < 1, then the operator A is necessarily bounded.

Title: Teaching and Learning in Math 111



In this talk I will give a short history of my efforts to incorporate active learning, reflections, and group work in Transition to Advanced Mathematics (Math 111).  I will describe the activities conducted during my sabbatical of Spring 2017 to study student learning in Math 111 and in subsequent courses.  I will summarize my findings, what I learned about data collection, and how I plan to conduct a new study starting in Fall 2017.
