Research Experiences for Undergraduates
Computational Algebraic Geometry, Combinatorics and Number Theory
Clemson South Carolina
Undergraduate students who have a solid background in mathematics and some
of computation are invited to apply for an eight-week research
experience in computational algebraic geometry, combinatorics and
number theory to be held at
Participants will be offered up to $500
in travel support, a dorm room to be shared with other participants in the
REU, up to $800
for meals and a stipend of $3,400
in return for their
participation in this program.
Participants will be introduced to various tools, techniques and problems
from computational algebraic geometry, combinatorics and number theory.
The participants will be
divided into teams of two or three.
Each team will then pick a problem on which to
focus for the remainder of the REU.
The goal of the program will be to help
students attain a higher level of independence in mathematical research by
giving them the opportunity to take part in a significant and interesting
research project. For the first two weeks of the program participants
will meet daily with their supervisers. As time progresses, these meetings
will become less frequent in order to allow the students to reach an increased
level of independence. Participants will be strongly encouraged to
pursue the publishing of their results in a suitable mathematical
journal. Students will also be encouraged to attend the
SouthEast Regional Meeting On Numbers
in the spring of the following
year and present their work there.
