VISITING MATHEMATICIANS

Below is a list of mathematicians who are (or will be) visiting Australia or New Zealand. The main purpose of this section is to enable institutions, other than the principal host institution, to invite these visitors to spend some time with them. We would ask, however, that anyone wishing to issue such an invitation to a visitor do so in cooperation with the listed contact for enquiries. This will ease the contact's task of coordinating the visit as a whole. Note that an up-to-date list of visitors to New Zealand is maintained on the web at http://www.math.auckland.ac.nz/~mcintyre/Visitors

Please send details of visitors to your department to the Editor of the Gazette .

Details about each visitor are presented in the following order:

name of visitor; home institution; whether accompanied; dates of visit; principal host institution; principal field of interest; contact for enquiries; comments.
