Primary Institution: Mount Holyoke College
Affiliation: Mount Holyoke College
City: South Hadley
State: MA
Job Duration: 2 months
Class Requirement: Completed Sophomore Year
Position Type: Research
Discipline(s): Mathematics
Description: The Summer Mathematics Institute at Mount Holyoke College has been engaging selected undergraduates in useful mathematical research since 1988. Topics have been drawn from number theory, algebra, algebraic geometry, analysis, mathematical physics and statistics. Frequently the topic involves the application of computational techniques to gain further insight into the problem. The topics chosen for the institute are serious ones connected with the main research interests of the faculty adviser, and not just artificial problems created for students. A project must meet the following criteria: (1) It deals with mainstream mathematics; (2) It can be attacked by computer experimentation; (3) It has a reasonable chance of producing results which will be of interest to the larger mathematical community; (4) It is accessible to the extent that students with a background of courses a little beyond calculus and linear algebra can be rapidly trained to understand the problem and some techniques for working on it; and (5) It involves some questions which can almost certainly be answered in the allotted time and others which have a promising, but indefinite and open-ended aspect.
