This eleven week program engages students in applied mathematics research projects. It is designed for African American, Hispanic, and Native American students who are traditionally under-represented in the mathematical sciences. The REU+ program starts 1 week before our regular REU program and provides additional mentoring and preparation for the participants. During this first week students will participate in a short intensive training in differential equations, modeling and dynamical systems accompanied by problem sessions and as well as some training in matlab and probability theory. This initial program will be organized by Professor Negash Medhin. The second week (and thereafter) REU+ students will merge into the regular REU program. The second week is an additional session, the REU/REU+ Undergraduate Modeling Workshop run especially for the REU program. For most of the summer REU+ students will be indistinguishable from, and intermingled with, all other REU students. Teams of students from the REU, REU+, and REG programs will spend their time working on a specific research project. REU+ arrive on 5/21 and depart on 8/2 (First day of program 5/22) REU arrive on 5/29 and depart on 8/1 (First day of program 5/30) Please submit a 1-2 page statement describing your interest in and motivation for doing mathematical research or participating in this program. You could also also address any relevant experiences, awards, or achievements and highlight how your participation in the program will help you further your academic goals.
