Students may be interested in the following Math Club talk, tomorrow at noon. Dan Cranston, Virginia Commonwealth University Bertrand’s Postulate states: For every positive integer , there is some prime number with . This result was conjectured in 1845 by Joseph Bertrand, who verified it for al less than 3 million, and it was proved […]

This meeting will include a Special Session dedicated to Undergraduate Research. The purpose of this session will be for undergraduates to present original mathematical research and results, whether from REUs, thesis work, or other independent […]

Senior Honors Lecture

Please join us for the Senior Honors Lecture for Duane Lê (’10). Friday, April 23 1:00 p.m. Room 618 SC Title: Regularity of Lebesgue measure and Besicovitch sets Abstract: We will discuss a striking regularity property concerning the measures of -dimensional slices of sets of finite measure in , when . This regularity is not guaranteed to […]

Please join us for the Senior Honors Thesis Defense for Nathan Fieldsteel (’10). Thursday, April 22 4:15 p.m. Room 638 SC Abstract: We will present a generalization of the Alexander module, which aims to distinguish knots by constructing modules corresponding to certain regular covering spaces of the knot complement. We will present a numerical invariant that […]

Please join us for the Senior Honors Thesis Defense for Erik Holum (’10). Friday, April 23 4:00 p.m. Room 638 SC Abstract: Given two knots, and , a fundamental problem in low dimensional topology is determining if and are equivalent. Knot invariants are a key tool in determining this equivalence. We will define an integer […]
