Many of our undergraduate mathematics majors are conducting academic research. A few recent examples are described below.
During Fall 2020 our undergraduate mathematics major Maxwell Lovig completed a research project Tick population modeling under the direction of Ross Chiquet and Amy Veprauskas.
During Fall 2020 our undergraduate mathematics majors Maddie Angerdina and Ian Bonin completed a research project Dynamics of a smallmouth bass populations with harvesting under the direction of Ross Chiquet and Amy Veprauskas.
During Fall 2020 our undergraduate mathematics major Maxwell Reigner Kane completed a research project A model of group partisanship's impact on voting behavior and electoral outcomes under the direction of Ross Chiquet.
During Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 our undergraduate mathematics major Christopher Andrew Bayard completed a research project Realizing finite groups as internal automorphism groups under the direction of Justin Lynd.
During Summer 2020 our undergraduate major Maxwell Lovig participated in the NSF funded REU Complex Data Analysis using Statistical and Machine Learning Tools at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Due to the pandemic this research was conducted remotely. This research resulted in the Communications in Statistics - Simulation and Computation article A mixture binary RRT model with a unified measure of privacy and efficiency, Communications in Statistics - Simulation and Computation, DOI: 10.1080/03610918.2021.1914092
During Spring 2021 our undergraduate mathematics major, Tahj Delasbour, completed a McNair Program research project Distributions of PageRank rankings for different types of randomly generated networks under the direction of Robin Koytcheff.
