Math professors, alumnus attend and present at Mathfest

Lowell Beineke, Jack W. Schrey professor of mathematics; Adam Coffman, acting chair and professor of mathematics; and alumnus Lingxi Wu (’16) attended Mathfest 2016, the annual summer meeting of the Mathematical Association of America, in Columbus, Ohio.

Coffman gave a talk on “Perturbing Isolated Points of Real Algebraic Space Curves.”

Wu’s talk, “Computational Mathematics and Minimizing Energy,” was based on research he did at IPFW under the supervision of Peter Dragnev, professor of mathematics.

Wu’s attendance at Mathfest was supported in part by a grant from Pi Mu Epsilon, the national mathematics honor society.
