Applied Mathematics majors Alayna Roesener and Joshua Lang attended the MAA MathFest mathematics conference in Cincinnati along with math faculty Dr. Mark Branson and Dr. Ben Wilson. Both students presented talks based on research done with Dr. Wilson through Stevenson's S3RP summer research program. Dr. Branson and Dr. Wilson also presented at the conference.

Faculty and Student at Conference

Dr. Benjamin Wilson and Applied Mathematics Junior, Evan Williams, attended the Spring 2019 conference of the MD-DC-VA section of the Mathematics Association of America in Frederick, MD cohosted by Hood College and Frederick Community College. Evan presented a poster on his and Dr. Wilson's work from summer 2018 titled, "Around the World in 239 Translations: Computing the Entropy of Written Language Using the Bible." The research examined the complexity of 239 different languages by computing quantities like entropy based on n-gram frequencies in translations of the Bible in each language. At the conference they also attended talks by students and faculty from other schools in the section.

Last week, it was announced that Karen Uhlenbeck is the winner of Norway's Abel Prize — often called the Nobel Prize of Math.  She is the first woman to win this award.  The Norwegian academy said it recognized Uhlenbeck "for her pioneering achievements in geometric partial differential equations, gauge theory and integrable systems, and for the fundamental impact of her work on analysis, geometry and mathematical physics."  At SU, we are excited to celebrate our female math faculty members and students!

Applied Math Senior, Rebecca Gruver, completed her Honors Capstone Internship at Booz Allen Hamilton in Annapolis Junction, Maryland.  For her Capstone project, Rebecca studied the following topic, "Are Plug-ins and Software Sufficient to Combat Fake News?"  Rebecca presented her work twice- once as a seminar and once at the School of the Sciences Fall Poster Session.  Both presentations were excellent.  Rebecca has been an intern at Booz Allen Hamilton over the past two summers.  After she graduates in May, Rebecca will begin working fulltime at Booz Allen Hamilton.  Congratulations!
