Congratulations to six of our majors presenting at the 46th Annual Pi M Epsilon Student Conference, part of the 47th Miami of Ohio University Anual Mathematics Conference: Differential Equations and Dynamical Systems and Their Applications. Students began their research during Mathematics Research Camp in August 2019, with work continuing into the school year.
Dr. Scott Kaschner gave a talk on Superstable Manifolds and the Ising Model on Hierarchical Lattices.
Student talks included the following:
Science Building Renovation
To keep pace with a rapidly changing world and continue preparing our graduates for the science of the future, it’s time for a bold investment to repurpose and renovate science facilities that match the high caliber of our students and faculty.

|The department is proud to announce that on Saturday, May 11th, we had over 30 students graduate from our programs. And, this is the first class to have several students graduate with a Statistics major! We are so proud of each and every one of our students and wish them all the best as they venture out into the world. We know you will all do great things! Below is a picture of several of our students and faculty who celebrated at a reception held by the department after graduation. Best wishes to you all!|
