FSU Mathematics Graduate Student Research Week 2019


Graduate Student Research Week

March 29-April 5

J. J. Love Building, Department of Mathematics

The Department of Mathematics is holding the Graduate Student Research Week to highlight research being conducted by the math graduate students. This celebration of research will consist of a series of "Flash Talks" in addition to a poster competition. The "Flash Talks" given by graduate students will be 8 minute research talks for a general math audience and will take place on March 29 at 3:35 in 101 LOV. The 6 graduate students chosen for the "Flash Talks" are listed below along with their abstracts. The second component of the Graduate Student Research Week is the poster contest. Students' posters can be viewed during the weeks of March 27- April 5 (and after!) on the 2nd floor of the Love Building. Students will be available on Wednesday and Thursday, March 27-28, between 2:30-4:30pm to present their posters to the judges and answer questions regarding their research.

Prizes will be awarded to the top 2 Flash Talks (1st place: $200, 2nd place: $100) and the top 3 posters (1st place: $200, 2nd place: $150, 3rd: $100). The Flash Talks and posters will be judged by a panel of faculty members and awards will be presented at Math Honors Day on April 5.
