Program Description:    

The Department of Mathematics & Statistics at the University of Michigan - Dearborn invites application for undergraduate research in applied mathematics in the summer of 2021 on the theme “Phase Retrieval with Applications to Optical Microscopy”. The project will incorporate elements of applied linear and matrix algebra, numerical analysis, and Fourier analysis, among others. The prerequisite for this project is a course in linear algebra. More details can be found here.

This eight-week program is scheduled from May 24th to July 16th. This is a full time program and commitment for the complete 8 weeks is required. Note that we intend to run a residential program; however, we have to follow university and state guidelines, so there is a possibility that the program will be in a virtual format. We will inform all applicants and participants as soon as we have more information on this issue.

Students will have a unique interaction with experienced faculty mentors in a productive intellectual environment, where they will learn how to use mathematical ideas to solve real-life problems. The program organizers will help students find appropriate venues to present and publish their results. Additionally, students will learn more about the graduate school application process and career opportunities in academia and industry.

Participants in this program will work alongside a cohort of fellow students from the UofM Dearborn REU Site in Mathematical Analysis and Applications. Those with interests in complex analysis, differential geometry, spectral theory, algebraic coding theory and geometric function theory are referred to the separate application form at for a listing of projects and application details.

The program is open to all undergraduate students, regardless of major, who are US citizens or US permanent residents. Students from underrepresented groups in mathematics, women, and students from two-year college programs are especially encouraged to apply.

The deadline for applications is February 21st, although applications received after the deadline may still be considered.
