Student Research

In recent years, faculty in the department have been actively involved in engaging students in research.  For example,

Computer Software:

With the support of the National Science Foundation, for many years, Dr. Dennis Mikkelson (emeritus faculty) supervised a number of students in creating software for visualizing data from neutron scattering experiments. 

Mathematical Research:

With the support of the National Science Foundation, Dr. Chris Bendel has directed students in creating/modifying software to make algebraic computations.  For more details click here.

With the support of the CURM program through Brigham Young University (sponsored by the National Science Foundation), Dr. Matt Horak directed students doing mathematical research in geometric group theory.  

Dr. Benjamin Jones has been supervising a student working in the area of Algebra/Combinatorics. The title of this project is "Solving combinatorial problems using linear algebra over finite fields."

Summer REU:

Starting in the Summer of 2012, Stout will be hosting a National Science Foundation sponsored Research Experiences for Undergraduate students site.  For information, please click here.
