Bowdoin Mathematician Builds Networks With Climate Scientists

globeThere are no simple solutions for the mathematical problems Bowdoin Professor of Mathematics Mary Lou Zeeman is trying to solve. She is looking at some of the most pressing sustainability problems facing the world. She’s not alone: Zeeman is leading several nationwide initiatives funded by the National Science Foundation that bring together mathematicians and climate scientists. “One has to have hope, and to remember that, at some level, the planet will be okay,” says Zeeman.
