Mason Experimental Geometry Lab Undergraduate Research Publication
The Department of Mathematical Sciences is pleased to announce that the work of a group of undergraduate researchers from the Mason Experimental Geometry Lab has been accepted for publication in the journal Nonlinear Differential Equations and Applications (NoDEA). The paper, titled “Pushed Fronts in a Fisher-KPP-Burgers System Using Geometric Desingularization,” is the result of work done by GMU undergraduate students David Wigginton, Katie Tuttle, and Samuel Molseed in the Fall semester of 2022. This work was done under the supervision of graduate mentor Matthew Kearney and faculty advisor Dr. Matthew Holzer.
The Mason Experimental Geometry Lab (MEGL) is a research lab dedicated to exposing undergraduate students to research in mathematics, with which comes the exploration of topics not seen in a typical undergraduate curriculum. Projects offer a wide variety of topics, both in pure and applied mathematics, and students from any major are encouraged to participate. In addition to offering an immersive approach to research, and a strong community, MEGL’s outreach team conducts events for K-12 students at schools across the NoVa area. The Lab is overseen by Lab Director Dr. Anton Lukyanenko, as well as graduate Lab Manager Swan Klein and assistant manager Anthony Pizzimenti.
