SUNY Canton Associate Professor Named as New Editor of Academic Journal
CANTON, NY (11/16/2012)(readMedia)-- SUNY Canton Associate Professor of Mathematics Daniel J. Gagliardi, Ph.D., has been named as an editor of the mathematics journal Graph Theory Notes of New York.
The publication is sponsored by the Metropolitan section of the Mathematical Association of America. Its purpose is to stimulate research in Graph Theory and to promote the exchange of ideas between researchers in the field.
"My new role as editor allows me to stay on top of new results in the field of graph theory, which I can then share with students," said Gagliardi. "The mathematics department has introduced several new upper divisional courses, including Graph Theory, in support of the newly developed mathematics minor at SUNY Canton."
Gagliardi shares his editorial responsibilities with founding editors Louis V. Quintas of Pace University and John W. Kennedy of Queens College. Graph Theory Notes of New York is published biannually and is distributed worldwide.
Gagliardi conducts research in both Lie Algebra and Graph Theory. His most recent article published in Graph Theory Notes discusses the surprising connections between these two fields of study. Gagliardi is also a coauthor of a textbook written with Saint Lawrence University professor James Defranza. Their book, Introduction to Linear Algebra With Applications, was published by McGraw-Hill Higher Education in 2008 and is being used worldwide. In 2011 the text was translated into Korean.
In addition to his work as a mathematician, Gagliardi is an accomplished double bassist. He and his colleague, Bill Vitek, a Clarkson University professor of philosophy, play jazz at local cafes and area events.
