Hendrix students win Andree Award
Each year, the Pi Mu Epsilon Journal recognizes the top
three papers appearing in its undergraduate mathematics journal
with the Andree Award. In each of the last two years, a Hendrix
student has received an Andree Award.
- Jared Williams ('03) won a 2005 Andree Award for a paper based
on his Hendrix senior thesis,
Extending Wilson's Theorem.
- Peter Horn ('04) won a 2004 Andree Award for his paper,
Modelling the Impact of Forest Fragmentation on Predator-Prey
The 2005 Hendrix-Rhodes-Sewanee Undergraduate Mathematics Symposium
will be held at Hendrix College on April 1-2. The invited speaker will
be Professor Robert Devaney of Boston University. More information.
The recently published Fall 2004 issue of The Pi Mu Epsilon
Journal includes a student paper co-written by 2004 mathematics
graduate Peter Horn. The paper titled "Modeling the Impact of Forest
Fragmentation on Predator-Prey Populations" was co-authored by Texas
A&M student Ryan Westbrook.
