University Hosts Research Experience Program for Talented Undergraduates

This summer the University of West Georgia is host to an eight-week Research Experience for Undergraduates program, funded by the National Science Foundation. The $230,000 REU program will be run each summer, through 2016, under the direction of Dr. Bruce Landman, professor and chair, and Dr. Abdollah Khodkar, professor, both of the department of mathematics. The program accepts eight talented undergraduate mathematics majors each year who will live on campus at UWG during the summer. The students are selected from a large pool of applicants from throughout the United States. The students receive a stipend, room and board, and reimbursement for travel expenses. The program provides these students with hands-on experience in conducting research in the mathematical areas of number theory, graph theory and combinatorics.
