Students will spend eight and a half weeks at Ithaca College, in the beautiful Finger Lakes region of Central New York, working with faculty from the Department of Mathematics on a research project in dynamical systems. Three different project areas are described below.
- Evolutionary dynamics of dispersal – Lattice models of ecological dynamics (Mentor: Dr. Ted Galanthay)
- Billiard dynamics on surfaces of revolution (Mentor: Dr. Dan Visscher)
- Pruned fractal trees – Iterated function systems with memory (Mentor: Dr. Dave Brown)
Each student will receive a stipend of $5,100 and an allowance toward on-campus housing and meals. Partial support for moving expenses will be provided. Funds for travel to conferences are available through support from the NSF.
(NOTE: With the on-going uncertainty due COVID, the Summer 2021 program may run virtually. We'll keep participants updated as details emerge.)
Who Should Apply:
The program is restricted to students who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents, who are current undergraduate students, and who will be undergraduate students in the fall semester of 2022. Students from underrepresented groups, including women, are strongly encouraged to apply.
The application deadline will be announced in November.
We thank you for your interest. We will be accepting applications for the Summer 2022 program towards the end of 2021. Please check back then.
Preference will be given to students who have completed introductory multivariable calculus and linear algebra. Preference will be given to applications received by February 22, 2021, but applications will be reviewed until all positions are filled.
For additional information, please contact Dr. Ted Galanthay via email or call (607) 274-3460.
