MOU 2019

Mathematical Outing for Undergraduates, an event held by the Department of Mathematics at Penn State and sponsored by National Science Foundation grant DMS-1753042, will take place during the weekend of 4/20-4/21 and is now seeking participants.

The outing will be held at the Lake Raystown Resort, about 50 miles from State College, from the morning of Sat 4/20, to the afternoon of Sun 4/21. The current plan is that 12 undergraduate students (preferably advanced math major/minor students) will participate.

The theme of the outing will be "The Dynamics of Pattern Formation in Nature", which surveys a research area initiated by Alan Turing in 1952. Participants will be required to read relevant materials and make 1-hour presentations during the retreat. There will be 6-8 presentations, and each of them can be made by either 1 or 2 students.

Each presentation will be based on the reading of <20 pages of material. The preparation for the presentations will be supervised by faculty mentors, Wenrui Hao and Zhiren Wang, during the weeks before the outing.

Please contact me at before Friday 3/29 if you wish to register as a participant.
