The principal objective of our NSF and UCONN CLAS funded REU program is to involve undergraduate students in cutting-edge mathematics research. We are interested in students who are curious about mathematics, regardless of previous research experience. Those who come from liberal arts colleges or branch campus backgrounds and may not have as many research opportunities at their home colleges or universities are especially encouraged to apply.

Our program began in 2006, giving undergraduate students an opportunity to be exposed to the fundamentals of scientific research, experience the intellectual delights of discovery, and explore possibilities for future careers in science. The program has produced a number of publications with student co-authors.

This year's program will involve:
UConn Math REU coordinator: Luke Rogers
Analysis on Fractals: Ulysses Andrews, Antoni Brzoska, Joe Chen, Richard Martin, Luke Rogers, Sasha Teplyaev
Math Education: Fabiana Cardetti, Kyle Evans
Representation Theory: Maximal Green sequences: Khrystyna Serhiyenko, Ralf Schiffler
Stochastic stabilization of Planar flows: Masha Gordina, Fan Ny Shum

Participants will spend 10 weeks (May 26 -- July 31) working in teams, researching problems of current interest, training in mathematical writing and speaking, using mathematical software, and learning about career opportunities in mathematics. The exact choice of the topics to study will depend on the students' background and interests. An active social program is coordinated with a number of other REU programs on campus.

Support includes a room in our modern university housing facilities, a small meal and travel allowance, and a stipend of $4000.

The program is open to math and science majors who are in their sophomore or junior year and are U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Women and minority students are particularly encouraged to apply.
