Mathematics Students Shine
At National Conference
by Dave Reid


From Dateline (March13, 2003)

Cal State Fullerton students recently proved they were math Titans at the joint meeting of the American Mathematical Society and the Mathematics Association of America in Baltimore.

Fullerton students won three of the 12 prizes given at an undergraduate research poster session. The 11-member student delegation presented nine research projects and was the largest contingent of all represented colleges, said Alfonso F. Agnew, assistant professor of mathematics and faculty adviser. A total of 82 posters were presented at the meeting.

“We have a large, bright group of mathematics students at Fullerton,” said James O. Friel, chair and professor of mathematics. “All of the students who participated in this conference did extremely well. They were very impressive, and we are proud of them.”

The winners and their projects were: Scot Childress, “Biquaternionic Projective Space”; Stephanie Proctor, “On K* Ultrahomogeneiou Graphs”; and Leslie Lippit, “Mixed vs. Independent Predation Terms in One Predator, Two-Prey Systems.”

Other participants were Laura Jiminez, Hoang Tram, John Mayberry, Tairi Roque, John Urrea, Tram Hoang, Shazia Khan, Lorena Ortiz and James Wrkich.

The conference's undergraduate poster competition was started several years ago by former Cal State Fullerton professor of mathematics Mario U. Martelli, who also was chair of the poster competition at the Baltimore conference. Also attending was former Titan math star Suzanne Sindi, who is pursuing a master's in mathematics at the University of Maryland.
