This is the application page for the 2020 Research Experiences for Undergraduates Program in Data Science, Number Theory, and Positional Game Theory. This REU will take place at Occidental College, a small liberal arts college in Northeast Los Angeles. This is an eight week program that will consist of nine undergraduates split into three groups to work with faculty members Treena Basu, Jim Brown, and Eric Sundberg. Our web site will provide sample problems from each area to give an idea of what you would be working on over the summer. The program will run from June 7 - August 1, 2020.

  • Upload (unofficial) college transcripts. 
  • Upload a statement of interest that addresses why you think you are a good fit for this particular REU program and why it is a good fit for you.  This statement MUST provide a ranking of the research areas (data science, number theory, game theory).
