We are still accepting applications for Spring 2012, until Thu Jan 26. Final
decisions will be made on Fri Jan 27. This semester, we will run one section of Math 203:
Sponsor: NASA Ames Research Center
Supervisor: Dr. Tim Hsu
Topic: Combinatorial optimization
* Be upper-level undergraduates or graduate students;
* Have good good grades in math classes;
* Have taken linear algebra (Math 129A) or equivalent; and
* Have some familiarity either with combinatorics (Math
142), abstract algebra (Math 128A), or other higher-level
Registration is by **application only**; class time(s) will
be chosen to fit the schedules of the students who are
chosen. For more information, or to apply, see:
If you'd like to find out more about the project, there will be a special colloquium on Wed Jan 25 that will introduce the problem that the team will work on:
Speaker: Jeff Scargle, NASA-Ames (the sponsor)
Title: "New Ways to Analyze Astronomical Time Series and Images"
Date: Wed Jan 25 (the first day of classes!)
Time & Room: 3pm, MH320
Cookies at 2:30 in MH331B
We will also head out for coffee at Philz afterwards to have a more informal discussion, so if you can make it to that too, that would be great.
If you are interested or if you have any questions, contact Dr. Tim Hsu (firstname.lastname@example.org).
