Students have the opportunity to work with faculty researchers on various projects. Recent publications by faculty have considered problems like
- measuring how vulnerable (or invulnerable) a network is to component failures
- the most accurate and informative way to measure and analyze baseball statistics
- determining what kind of networks have the most of a special kind of sub-network
For more information on faculty research, please ask a faculty member or visit their webpages.
Mathematics honors students
are also required to complete an honors research project and write a thesis
based on their work. Past work treated topics such as
- deriving formulas for number of spanning trees in certain discrete graphs
- finding new solutions to the number theoretic equation σ(q)+ σ(r)= σ(q+r)
- discovering graphs whose Laplacian matrix has integer eigenvalues.
