Department of Mathematical Sciences, REU

Primary Institution: Clemson University
Affiliation: Department of Mathematical Sciences
City: Clemson
State: SC
Job Duration: 8 weeks
Class Requirement: Completed Freshman Year
Minimum GPA: 3.0
Position Type: Research
Discipline(s): Computational Number Theory and Combinatorics
Description: Undergraduate students who have a solid background in mathematics and some knowledge of computation are invited to apply for an eight-week research experience in computational number theory and combinatorics to be held at Clemson University. The participants will be offered up to $400 in travel support, a dorm room to be shared with other participants in the REU, up to $800 for meals and a stipend of $2,900 in return for their participation in this program.

Participants will be introduced to various tools, techniques and problems from computational number theory and combinatorics. 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 the PI and co-PI. 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 (SERMON) in the spring of the following year and present their work there.
Stipend: $2,900
