PAlmetto Number Theory Series XXXVI, October 21-22, 2023, Clemson University in memoriam of Kevin James (1968-2023), founding director of the School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences:

The Palmetto Number Theory Series (PANTS) is a series of number theory meetings held at colleges and universities in South Carolina, the Palmetto State as well as neighboring states. The core members of the PANTS consortium are:

The goal of the PANTS meetings is to provide an opportunity for number theorists in South Carolina, and more generally, in the Southeast, to hear about recent research in all areas of number theory, pure and applied.

PANTS is funded for the 2023-2024 academic year by grants from the NSF and NSA, and generous support from the College of Science and School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences, Clemson University. For links to webpages of past PANTS meetings (PANTS I-XXXV), see the PANTS home page.
