Name: Future Directions in Commutative Rings Inspired by the Work of Laszlo Fuchs
Location: Tulane University, New Orleans, Louisiana.
Laszlo Fuchs is an outstanding researcher and author, whose extraordinary productivity and influential monographs in the areas of abelian groups, ordered algebraic structures, rings, and modules, have directly impacted the growth and direction of research in these important areas of algebra for the past half century. He has published roughly 250 research papers, four very influential research monographs, and numerous lecture notes. This short conference will primarily focus on Prof. Fuchs' contributions to the theory of commutative rings, with some connections to non-commutative ring theory. His work in commutative rings accentuates the unifying nature of all his work in algebra, and is among his greatest contributions to the broader field. As impressive as his life's work is, Prof. Fuchs' most telling accomplishment has perhaps been his ability to help other researchers focus on the right problems.
