Debra Boutin
Boutin Gives Talks at Hobart-William Smith and at Skidmore Colleges
Associate Professor of Mathematics Debra Boutin gave invited talks at Hobart-William Smith College and at Skimore College over break. In her talk "Graphs and Symmetry" Boutin introduced graphs and their symmetries with the goal of helping the audience to develop intuition about the subject. She then showed some of the questions and results that have arisen in this area in recent years. Boutin's talk at Skidmore College was part of their annual Pi Mu Epsilon ceremony to induct new members. Pi Mu Epsilon is the national mathematics honor society. More ...
Sally Cockburn
Cockburn Presents at the University of Victoria
Associate Professor of Mathematics Sally Cockburn gave a talk, "Permutations and Geometric Realizations of Complete Bipartite Graphs," at the Discrete Mathematics Seminar at the University of Victoria on March 8. The presentation was based on her current sabbatical leave research, which uses the combinatorial structure of inversions in permutations to classify the straight-line drawings of complete bipartite graphs. The topic is an offshoot of joint work with Associate Professor of Mathematics Debra Boutin. More ...

Boutin Publishes Research Article
Associate Professor of Mathematics Debra Boutin recently published a research article "Determining Sets, Resolving Sets, and the Exchange Property" in Graphs and Combinatorics. In this work, Boutin examines two classes of subsets in a network, each of which can be used to uniquely identify both the vertices and the symmetries of the network. In particular she examines when such subsets are analogous to a basis, a set that is fundamental to other areas of mathematics. More ...

Boutin Gives Colloquium at Center for Communication Research
Associate Professor of Mathematics Debra Boutin presented a colloquium at the Institute for Defense Analyses, Center for Communication Research, in Princeton, N.J., in February. More ...
Andrew Dykstra
Dykstra Speaks at Furman University
Andrew Dykstra, assistant professor of mathematics, spoke at Furman University on Feb. 18. His talk investigated examples of chaotic dynamical systems that arise in nature. In addition to finding mathematical models of these systems, the talk focused on using numerical analysis to describe long-term evolution. More ...

Boutin Presents Work at National Conference
Associate Professor of Mathematics Debra Boutin gave a talk "Thickness and Chromatic Numbers of Inflated Graphs" at the Joint Mathematics Meetings in San Francisco in January. In her talk Boutin described the current state of work she's done with Michael Albertson of Smith College and Ellen Gethner of University of Colorado, Denver, on r-inflated networks. A network is r-inflated by replacing each vertex in by a set of r mutually connected vertices and replacing each edge between a pair of vertices with all edges between the associated 2r vertices.

Young People's Project Equates Math With Leadership
The Young People's Project at Hamilton College hosted its first semi-annual math tournament on Saturday, Dec. 5, in the Fillius Events Barn. Attendees included 24 students whom the organization works with at Donovan Middle School in Utica. More ...
Andrew Dykstra
Dykstra Gives Colloquium Talk
Andrew Dykstra, assistant professor of mathematics, gave a colloquium talk to the mathematics faculty at the University of Denver on Oct. 15. The talk was titled "Very Weakly, Loosely, and Vaguely Bernoulli." It focused on classes of dynamical systems that exhibit random behavior, but whose behavior is not quite as random as a simple coin toss. More ...
Math Department to Host Alumni Panel on Careers in Math Education
The Mathematics department will host a panel discussion featuring three recent graduates who are currently employed in the field of math education on Friday, November 6. The panel will include Stephanie Hedges '96 of Greenwich Academy, Pete Huszagh '03 of the STAR Academy at Riverhead High School, and Tim Evans '05 of NYC Lab Middle School. More ...
Grace Stadnyk
Grace Stadnyk '10 Presents Talk at Math Conference
Grace Stadnyk '10 attended the Women in Math in New England conference at Smith College on Sept. 26 where she gave a talk titled "Towers of Hanoi Groups and Their Limit Spaces." The talk was based on research on fractal analysis that she conducted this summer at the University of Connecticut. More ...
