Most interesting mathematics mistake?
The story was recounted by Kazimierz Kuratowski in his ``A half century of Polish mathematics." Of course neither Suslin nor his advisor Lusin were Polish, but Waclaw Sierpinski, a Polish mathematician who was interned in Russia at that time, witnessed the conversation between Suslin and Lusin in which the student communicated the discovery to the professor. |

What universities have laid off tenured math faculty for financial reasons?
@Andre: Done. Hard to cut through all this legalese; hopefully this citation is enough. @zibadawa timmy: You are entitled to seek whatever "implications" you see fit; I didn't want to offer any. Certainly this is about a recent dismissal of tenured faculty. While the OP is interested mainly in cases happening for financial reasons, he did not restrict his interest to ``only wrongful dismissals,please", however one may interpret such a phrase. |
