The IMA summer REU gives students an experience in working on an interdisciplinary project involving mathematics. Students will work in teams of three with a faculty advisor and a postdoctoral mentor. This is a hands-on experience. There will be a few formal lectures. However, students will spend most of their time doing actual research. Students are expected to produce a poster and a publication-quality written report, and to give an oral presentation by the end of the 5-week period.
Reading and supporting material will be provided to successful applicants prior to the start of the program.
Stipend and allowance:
,500 stipend, campus housing and meals, travel allowance of up to 0. Participants also have a 0 allowance for travel to a national meeting during the 2009-2010 academic year to present results of their REU work.
Must be full-time undergraduate mathematics major and must devote full time to the program and may not engage in other course work or employment during the 5 week period.
