D.W. Weeks Lecture Series Archive
This lecture series was named in honour of Dorothy W. Weeks, who was the first woman awarded a Ph.D. in Mathematics at MIT in 1930. She had a substantial career as a professor and head of physics at Wilson College (PA), and as a researcher in the spectroscopy lab at MIT. She died in Newton, MA in 1990.
This series was intended for a general audience and in particular advanced undergraduates or beginning graduate students.
