Eight undergraduate students will be selected to spend two months (June 18 to August 17) during the Summer of 2012 working on a variety of non-trivial research projects in Combinatorics, Graph Theory, and Random Graph Theory & Structures. Probability Theory and Classical Analysis will often be used as fundamental tools in their solution, though there will be a few "stand alone" problems in discrete mathematics. Examples of papers written by students from past years may be found elsewhere on this website.
Our REU team will travel en masse to the Annual AMS Meeting in San Diego in January 2013, where the students' findings will be presented to a national mathematical audience. Other conference presentations will also be made, but cannot be predicted at this time.
Students must be
The research will be conducted under the supervision of Professor Anant P.
The ideal candidate for this project would have taken a wide variety of upper-level Mathematics classes (including some of the following: Probability, Discrete Mathematics, Real Analysis). A distinguished academic record, and indication of research interest or potential are essential. Make sure you check the CRITERIA FOR SELECTION section for more details.
