The Willamette Valley REU in Mathematics
Discrete Mathematics and Combinatorics
During summer 2013, Linfield hosted a team of undergraduate research students as part of the NSF-sponsored Willamette Valley Mathematics Consortium REU-RET (Research Experience for Undergraduates—Research Experience for Teachers) program. In addition, two Linfield students participated through funding from the Linfield Student-Faculty Collaborative Research Grant Program. The team consisted of two faculty members, Chuck Dunn and Mike Hitchman, and six undergraduate students: Levi Altringer (Linfield College), Amanda Bright (Westminster College–Missouri), Greg Clark (Westminster College–Pennsylvania), Kyle Evitts (Linfield College), Brian Keating (University of California, San Diego), and Brian Whetter (University of Puget Sound). The team worked on new questions in the area of mathematical tiling. As part of the Consortium, the team participated in five mini-conferences held at each of the participating institutions: Willamette University (two conferences), Lewis and Clark College, the University of Portland, and Linfield College.
