About us

We are the Mathematics Undergraduate Student Association of the University of California, Berkeley!

We strive to improve the overall quality of studying mathematics here as an undergraduate, especially by advocating for issues that benefit the entire undergraduate math community, not only the subset that attends our events.

Joining MUSA is an excellent way to connect with other math enthusiasts. You can learn about the many opportunities for math students, including little tricks that will help you survive the rigorous math curriculum here.

Our officers include academic, diversity, outreach, and professional groups working to provide services to math undergraduates, including:

Our office, 938 Evans, is also usually open, selling hoodies and food — but we encourage students to come in just to chat about math or life. We won't bite!

We encourage students to come to our Thursday events, held in 1015 Evans, where you can meet fellow math geeks and get valuable information. Our events are open to the public, not just declared math majors — so don't be a stranger!

Most annoucements are done over MUSA's mailing list.

Weekly Events

We hold events every week throughout the semester. Typically, our events are held at 6pm-8pm at Evans 1015, the top floor lounge of Evans Hall. Our upcoming events can be seen in the calendar.

Mirror symmetry in six dimensions

Catherine Cannizzo

8 October — 1015 Evans

I will describe my thesis work in understanding an example of a six dimensional manifold, a symplectic manifold, through a concept arising from string theory known as mirror symmetry.

Fractal topology

Prerequisite: Math 104

If X is a metric space, say that X has a fractal topology if, for each nonempty open set U in X, there is a homeomorphism from U to X. What's an example of X?
