Note: this opportunity encourages applications from community college students.

The Mathematics and Computer Science Department of Muhlenberg College Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program concentrates on research projects associated with the On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences (OEIS) and its role in stimulating new research. Sequences play an important role in number theory, combinatorics and discrete mathematics, among many other fields. They enumerate objects in sets and define relationships among items or properties shared between them. A particular emphasis of the program will be to discuss the important role the OEIS has played in developing conjectures in areas that include number theory, algorithmic and enumerative combinatorics, combinatorial number theory, and many other mathematical fields, as well as the tools necessary for identifying such conjectures. Students will work in integrated teams with mentors and immerse themselves in open-ended mathematics research projects. Participating students will be provided a stipend of $4,500, on-campus housing with support for a summer meal plan, and travel expenses to and from the Muhlenberg College campus.

Due to funding agency rules, only U.S. Citizens and Permanent Residents who will be full time undergraduate students in Fall 2016 are eligible to apply. Women, minorities, and students with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
