Karen Lange
Assistant Professor of Mathematics

Professor Lange's interests are in computability theory, an area of logic that explores the algorithmic content encoded in mathematical problems.


Professor Lange's interests are in computability theory, an area of logic that explores the algorithmic content encoded in mathematical problems. She studies the computational complexity of problems associated with algebraic structures such as real closed fields, fields that are generalizations of the real numbers, and free groups. Answering these computational questions often requires using tools from model theory, another area of logic, and algebra.


Upcoming Events

The math department's student seminar kicks off for the semester.  Join us at 12:20 in room 362 for food and a mathematics talk by a fellow Wellesley math enthusiast.

Monday, Sept 22

The weekly student seminar meets in room 362 at 12:20.  The department will provide lunch, and one of your peers will provide a great talk.  All are welcome to attend!

Tuesday, Sept 23

Dan Rockmore from Dartmouth College will deliver our annual Martha Davenport Heard lecture. The talk starts at 4:15, and afterwards we'll go to the College Club for dinner

Wednesday, Sept 27

This year's Math Games will be held from 4-6 in room 362 of the science center.  No particular mathematics experience is needed; bring your friends and come join the fun!
