Professor Pfaff Publishes Article in the College Mathematics Journal
Tom Pfaff, a professor in the mathematics department, recently published an article in the College Mathematics Journal. The article, Averaging Sums of Powers of Integers, appeared in the November, 2011 issue.
In the article, Professor Pfaff addresses the question: "When is the average of sums of powers of integers itself a sum of the first n integers raised to a power?" The article provides all solutions when averaging two sums, and provides some conditions regarding when larger averages may have solutions.
