Faculty Development Grant Report
Geometry and Topology
This grant provided Dr. Hitchman with funding to help facilitate a sabbatical courtesy appointment at The National University of Ireland, Galway (NUIG). At NUIG, Dr. Hitchman focused on generating questions for undergraduate research in the mathematics of tiling. Dr. Hitchman also engaged colleagues on a question in low-dimensional topology that arose from one of Dr. Hitchman’s previous papers. The primary product of this grant to date is the publication of a chapter in the text A Primer for Undergraduate Research: From Groups and Tiles to Frames and Vaccines, to be published by Birkhaüser in February 2018.
