About

The Mathematical Picture Language Project at Harvard University is a research collaboration among Faculty Members, Postdoctoral Researchers, Visitors, and Students. Much background work culminated with the official start of our project in September 2017. You can learn more by looking at some research papers we have written, some awards we've received for this work, and some articles in which picture language features.

We encourage students who may wish to work in the project to look through this web site, to attend our Mathematical Picture Language seminar, and to consult us. In addition to the resources to which we refer above, we have regular informal seminars on "work in progress." During the academic year 2017-2018 these discussions were held on an imprompto basis. During the fall term 2018 we held regular meetings on Friday mornings 11:00-12:00 in Lyman 338, followed by lunch at Lowell House.  Persons wishing to attend should talk with one of us.

We have organized several events at Harvard University and elsewhere. During the summer of 2018 we organized a program at the AMSS within the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing. We plan a meeting December 10-12, 2018 at Harvard. For further information, contact one of us, or send an email to our project staff assistant, Barbara Drauschke.
