To Do for Wed, Feb 13

  • The Math Club is having another talk on Wednesday afternoon, about surprising mathematics. THIS JUST IN: Talk has been rescheduled.
  • The Mathematics Department REU projects have been announced. These are paid positions to do research in teams of 1-6 with a faculty mentor. Online application requires identikey, due March 1st.
  • Finish reading your text, Chapter 2. I will de-emphasize the bit on Mersenne primes and perfect numbers. It’s a nice story, but not central to anything. So you needn’t focus too much on those proofs.
