The fine folks at UNT in Denton, TX have a summer research program for undergraduates. They just let us know that they especially interested applications from OU students and other non-UNT students.
Applicants selected to participate will receive a stipend of up to $2,000 in addition to valuable hands-on mathematics research experience under the supervision of a UNT Department of Mathematics faculty mentor.
Following is the link to the dedicated webpage for the program which provides information about this year’s faculty mentors and research opportunities as well as a link to downloadable .pdf for the attached flier http://math.unt.edu/2013-rtg-sums
The application form has not yet been finalized and posted, but is expected to be available online soon. In light of the fact that this year’s deadline is particularly tight, there is an deadline for non-UNT Denton students has been extended to 5 PM, Monday, April 15, for non-UNT Denton students, but interested students are encouraged to submit their applications as early as possible.
If you happen to live in the DFW area, this is a great opportunity for an interesting summer research experience right at home. Check it out!
Do you live in the Metroplex? Our friends to the south at the University of North Texas are having an undergraduate math talk by Nolan Wallach from UC San Diego. It’s
This Friday, March 22nd in Room 105 of the UNT General Academic Building at 2:00 pm.
Attendees are invited to join us at the pre-lecture reception (cookies, coffee and tea will be served) that begins at 1:30 PM, upstairs, in room 472.
The title is “What is Quantum Entanglement?” and the abstract and other details can be found here.
Our friends to the south, UNT, are again providing a paid summer research program for people living in the greater Denton area.
Research includes combinatorics, set theory, number theory, fractals, and more!
Applications are due on April 12th.

If you happen to be heading south this weekend, then there is a talk this Friday at the math department of the University of North Texas as part of the Undergraduate Math Research Colloquium series. The UMRC “features public lectures by mathematics researchers and educators about significant mathematics research that is accessible to undergraduate students.” If you go down to DFW on the weekends, keep an eye on the UMRC schedule and you might find a good reason to stop in Denton!
This Friday’s talk is by Solomon Friedberg of Boston College.
Here’s the details:
FRIDAY, SEPT. 16, 2011, 2:00- 3:00 PM – University of North Texas, General Academics Building, #105;
Pre-Lecture Reception @ 1:30, General Academics Building, #472
SOLOMON FRIEDBERG (Boston College)
Title: PACKING PRIMES
Abstract: Prime numbers are the building blocks of all whole numbers, and the basis for modern applications such as sending credit card numbers over the internet securely. In this talk I will describe ways that the prime numbers, though individually distributed erratically, accumulate into regular patterns when packed together. In looking at this, we will find out about links between prime numbers and the numbers “e” and “pi”, which seem to have nothing to do with primes whatsoever!
Anyone in the DFW area who’s interested in checking out some good math this Friday should visit the fine folks at UNT:
The University of North Texas Department of Mathematics’Research and Training Group (RTG) in Logics and Dynamics invites you to attend an Undergraduate Research Symposium on Friday, August 5, 2011, 8:30 AM – 5:30 PM, for which you’ll find a poster attached. An online version of the poster can be accessed at http://www.math.unt.edu/rtg/RTGSymp_web.pdf.
Featured plenary speakers are Paul Baginski (Smith College), Chris Peterson (Colorado State University) and Patrick Shipman (Colorado State University). Student lecturers will include UNT’s 2011 RTG summer undergraduate math scholars research program participants (UNT, Texas Wesleyan University) and guests from the University of Texas Austin.
There is no registration fee, but please contact Dr. William Cherry at firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday, August 2, to pre-register if you are planning to attend.
The RTG is supported by the National Science Foundation and the University of North Texas.
Your kind cooperation in helping us to spread the word by forwarding this email and/or posting the event information will be greatly appreciated.

Do you live in the DFW area? The excellent math department at the University of North Texas has a great opportunity to get paid to do math research this summer. The program is specifically designed for people living within commuting distance of UNT. For further details and to apply, go here.
Eligibility & Expectations: RTG Undergraduate Math Scholars must be US Citizens or permanent residents enrolled as undergraduates in a US institution during the spring of 2011 and planning on enrolling as an undergraduate at a US institution during fall 2011. RTG Undergraduate Math Scholars do not need to have a prior affiliation with UNT.
- RTG Undergraduate Math Scholars are expected to conduct research under the supervision of one of the UNT faculty members listed below.
- In most cases, the scholars are expected to come regularly to the UNT campus in Denton, Texas to work with their mentor for a period of at least five weeks. Most scholars will already be located in the DFW metroplex, north central Texas, or southern Oklahoma. Some additional funds may be available to help defray gas costs for those driving more than 50 miles to come to campus. In exceptional circumstances, a housing allowance may be provided for a student coming from farther away, or a student from farther away may propose to collaborate with his or her mentor via the internet.
- RTG Undergraduate Math Scholars are expected to participate in at least three RTG enrichment activities (such as seminars and lectures) that will be taking place throughout the summer.
- RTG Undergraduate Math Scholars are required to make a written report of their research and to present their research at the RTG Undergraduate Research Symposium to be held in Denton on Friday, August 5, 2011.
- RTG Undergraduate Math Scholars are expected not to have other employment or be enrolled in course work during the period they are receiving a stipend.
Applications are due April 20!
Here is a great grad school option from our southern neighbors if you’re interested in Logic and Dynamics. Notice the excellent fellowship they offer!
RTG Graduate Fellowships
Applications are invited for graduate fellowships in the Research Training Group in Logic and Dynamics in the Mathematics Department at the University of North Texas. Fellowships are available for students entering the Mathematics PhD program in Fall 2011. Each fellowship includes at least five years of support consisting of a stipend of $20,000 for the academic year, all tuition and fees, summer support, and money for travel to conferences.
