Carolina Math Seminar comes to The Citadel
Mathematics scholars from all over the state of South Carolina will gather at The Citadel to attend the Carolina Mathematics Seminar. The Citadel Department of Mathematics and Computer Science is sponsoring the Oct. 26 meeting in Thompson Hall.
CMS is hosted twice a semester at different colleges and universities around the state, giving professors and students an opportunity to discuss student research as well as adaptations of mathematics.
The first seminar took place in 2009 at the University of South Carolina by a mathematics team. Under their guidance, the seminar branched out all over the state. Citadel Mathematics Professors Rigoberto Florez and Antara Mukherjee organize the meetings.
“We first organized the seminar to promote communication and the exchange of ideas among scholars and students of mathematics,” said Florez. “The seminar also evolved into a wonderful opportunity for mathematicians to network within the state.”
Rachel Hudson, a student from USC Sumter, is among the students presenting research at the October meeting. Hudson will present research she has done on the basics of cryptology, demonstrating how mathematics is used to decipher and decrypt information.
