Several students who have worked in our program have gone on to claim Nobel prizes, although these prizes were later returned to their rightful owners. Students studying for their verbal GRE’s have called the experience ‘obsequious,’ ‘soporific,’ and ‘arresting.’
Students come from all parts of the United States to study at Lafayette College. We, in turn, have done some wonderful things during the summers. These include traveling to New York City to see shows, Philadelphia to see baseball games, the Delaware River for rafting trips, Ringing Rocks State Park (Motto: God has a sense of humor) for some rock-hammering, and the Poconos and Adirondacks for hiking trips. We hope to include students on these excursions in the future.

The Truth: Students work on projects that span all of mathematics, everything from applied mathematics (modeling fish locomotion, delay differential equations), discrete math (graph theory, finite geometry, matroid theory), abstract algebra (group theory, number theory), geometry and visualization (fractals in number theory, Cayley graphs), probability (random walks, Martingales), and projects that cross several areas of mathematics (geometry and symmetry of quaternions). Students talk about their work at their home institutions, at regional MAA meetings, at summer MathFest meetings and at the annual AMS-MAA joint winter meeting.
