CEDAR FALLS, Iowa – Henry Segerman, assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics at Oklahoma State University, will visit the University of Northern Iowa to present the annual Hari Shankar Memorial Lecture at 7:30 p.m., Tuesday, April 8, in Sabin Hall, Room 002.

Segerman's lecture is "How to Make Sculptures of 4-Dimensional Things." He is a mathematician and a mathematical artist, and works with 3-dimensional geometry, topology and printing.

The lecture is funded through a donation from Shankar with additional support from UNI's Department of Mathematics. Shankar, who died in 2008, taught at Ohio University for more than 30 years before joining UNI as a visiting professor.

The lecture is free and open to the public. For additional information, contact Doug Mupasiri, department head and professor of mathematics, at 319-273-2012 or douglas.mupasiri@uni.edu.
