Undergraduate Research: 2011
Abstract Algebra


Student Tyler Carrico calculated the probability that randomly chosen sets of elements from certain types of mathematical groups would generate those groups.

Tyler's article is published in Involve: a Journal of Mathematics, a respected journal of original mathematical research for both undergraduate and graduate students.

Below, I am with Tyler at a national Joint Mathematics Meeting, where he presented a poster on his research.
