Collaborating on problems in combinatorics

Joint work of fifth-year graduate student Juan Auli and Professor Sergi Elizalde on inversion sequences in combinatorics has led to two papers published this year: Consecutive Patterns in Inversion Sequences in Discrete Mathematics & Theoretical Computer Science and Consecutive Patterns in Inversion Sequences II: Avoiding Patterns of Relations in Journal of Integer Sequences.  Learn more +

Professor Rockmore writes in The New Yorker

Where do mathematical ideas come from? In part, from “a feeling of being free, of forgetting for a moment that we are bound by gravity and logic and convention, of letting the magic happen,” writes Professor Dan Rockmore in The Myth and Magic of Generating New Ideas in The New Yorker Annals of Inquiry. “Perhaps it is the momentary feeling of being untethered that gives the mind free rein — the space to have a good idea.”

Undergraduate Research

Byrne Scholar research project in biomathematics

Byrne Scholar Connor Spencer ’22, second from left, conducted research on the genetics of thermogenesis of eutherian mammals at the Wenner-Gren Institute this summer. Connor is especially interested in the intersection of computer science and applied mathematics. “My research this summer at the Wenner-Gren Institute at Stockholm University offered me with a truly life-changing experience,” he says. “I am really glad to have taken part in this research and worked with some of the best thinkers in this field.”
