Undergraduate Research in Mathematics
The Hope College Mathematics Department will conduct an undergraduate research program in Summer 2014. Most of the projects will run from June 2 to July 25, 2014. Projects are available to Hope College students in population dynamics/ecology, topological data analysis, and mathematics education. Note: Funding for the renewal of an NSF-REU site at Hope College was not approved for 2014, and we will therefore be unable to accept any external participants this year. For Hope students, there are details about available projects at http://sharp.hope.edu/.
Participants will receive a stipend for the eight week program. Free apartment-style housing will be provided. Funds for travel and books/supplies are also available.
The Hope campus has many undergraduate students from Hope College and other colleges and universities doing research in the natural sciences and mathematics during the summer. There are substantial recreational opportunities, with the west Michigan beaches nearby. Joint social events will be planned with students in concurrent undergraduate research programs in physics, computer science, biology, and chemistry.
Our past experience has shown that students find summer research experiences to be both valuable and enjoyable. Many have written papers based on their results and given talks at professional meetings. Student comments from a previous summer include:
