Current Projects

  • Metric dimension and robotic navigation on graphs
  • Kemeny's constant and random walks on graphs
  • Spatial distributions of inertial particles advected by rough turbulent flows
  • Happy numbers: behavior under function iteration

Dates and Deadlines

  • Review of applications will begin Monday October 22 and continue until all places are filled.


  • Undergraduates in ISMaRT may receive up to 3 credits of Math 499 for participation in ISMaRT upon agreement with the faculty member who is on the project.
  • 3 credits of Math 499 that includes significant writing and oral presentation can be used to meet the Math 492 seminar requirement with the approval of the Math Undergraduate Committee.
