**Adam Jara,** Computational Science '08, had a computational science summer internship at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton. The project examined isomers of the chemical compound C60S. You can download a detailed report on the internship here (PDF File).

**Indraroop Roy Mohanti** '08, Mathematics and Computer Science, held an internship at the Ohio Supercomputer Center in Springfield, OH over the summer of 2006. While at OSC, Mohanti works with OSC researchers to implement code samples for a multi-core parallelized versions of MATLAB and Octave, two single-core programming languages. Fractal calculations and visualizations were chosen for their calculation and memory intesive nature. A presentation on his results can be found here, and a paper on his results can be found here.

**Emily List, Mathematics** '07, presented at the Ohio Section meeting of the Mathematics Association of America in April of 2006. Her talk was titled "P vs. NP, AKS, RSA: The Acronyms of Mathematics Awareness Month" and can be found here (Powerpoint Show file).

**Ellen Peterson** '06, Mathematics, participated in a Research Experience for Undergraduates sponsored by the National Sience Foundation at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln over the summer of 2005. She, along with other REU participants, studied population crontrol of peregrine falcons through mathematical models. A presentation of her results can be found here, and a paper on the subject can be found here.
