    Mathematical Research

    Each senior mathematics major and minor is expected to research a topic of his or her choosing, in consultation with a faculty member. The research results in a short research and or expository paper and a presentation to faculty and other mathematics students in the Mathematics Colloquium.

    Examples of past research topics:

    • Formal Proof of the Existence of a Nash Equilibrium
    • The Laplace Equation in a Disk and the Poisson integral Formula
    • Laplace Inverse Transformations
    • The Steiner Ellipse
    • Proof of the Five Color Theorem
    • Generating Functions
    • Reflective Surfaces
