The "Woods" Series was established
by a generous gift from the estate of J. James Woods. The goal of
the Woods bequest is to bring prominent mathematicians and
scientists to Butler University in order to speak on theories at
the frontier of their disciplines, as well as on related
technologies and other issues of public concern.
