Richard Wu '16
Interest in Cryptography Leads Richard Wu ’16 to Emerson Research Project

Richard Wu ’16 is working this summer on a computer program that reintroduces linguistics to modern cryptography by exploring and combining the two fields’ theoretical backgrounds. Working with Associate Professor of Japanese Masaaki Kamiya, he seeks to create a program that can parse the sentence structures of a given message and encrypt them through a combination of the public-key cryptosystem RSA and transposition.  More ...

Museum of Mathematics Internship Is No Problem for Colin Day ’16

Colin Day ’16 is spending his summer at the National Museum of Mathematics in Manhattan, helping to tackle what he believes to be an all-too-common popular aversion to mathematics in today’s society. Day had discovered this opportunity through the Museum of Mathematics (MoMath’s) Facebook page. His internship is supported by the Monica Odening Student Internship and Research Fund in Mathematics, managed by Hamilton’s Career and Life Outcomes Center.  More ...

Four Recent Grads Joining Towers Watson

Since the implementation of the Affordable Care Act in 2010, health care has remained in the minds of many Americans and news outlets, who wonder and speculate about its future. Yet, the conversation is often centered around legislation and healthcare providers, leaving much important work unnoticed. This summer, four Hamilton graduates, Sam Sherman ’15, Taylor Brandin ’15, Alicia Rost ’15 and Kurt Minges ’15, will be joining Towers Watson, an “American global professional services firm,” as Health and Group benefits analysts.  More ...

Debra Boutin
Boutin Publishes Research Article

Professor of Mathematics Debra Boutin recently published a research article "Infinite Graphs with Finite 2-Distinguishing Cost" in the Electronic Journal of Combinatorics. In this article Boutin and her coauthor, Wilfried Imrich of Montanuniversit\"{a}t Leoben, Austria, prove that each member in a large class of infinite graphs has a very small set of nodes that can be used to obstruct all symmetry.  More ...
