Corrine Elliott receives Undergraduate Award in Organic Chemistry from the American Chemical Society

Corrine Elliott was recognized as the American Chemical Society's Division of Organic Chemistry as the most outstanding, senior organic chemistry student at the University of Kentucky. Selection is based on aptitude for organic chemistry as evidenced by formal course work as well as research accomplishments during the course of their undergraduate studies, and lastly by a desire to pursue a career in chemistry.

Van Winter Memorial Lecture: Energy on the Edge (Rescheduled)

In many applications, e.g. photonic and quantum systems, one is interested in controlled localization of wave energy. Edge States are a type of localization along a line-defect or interface between media. We study edge states in honeycomb structures (such as graphene and its photonic analogues) and discuss their novel properties. In particular, we examine the formation of Topologically Protected Edge States, which persist and are stable against strong local distortions of the edge, and are therefore potential vehicles for robust energy-transfer in the presence of defects and random imperfections.

We further discuss rigorous results and conjectures for families of continuum PDE models (Schroedinger and Maxwell) admitting edge states which are topologically protected, edge states which are not protected, and states which remain localized near an edge for a very long time, but likely decay eventually.

Refreshments will be served in CP179 at 3:30pm.

Wednesday, March 29, 2017 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm

Corrine Elliott recognized for research accomplishments with a 2016 Goldwater Scholarship

Corrine Elliott was awarded a 2016 Goldwater Scholarship.  The Barry Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Program was established by Congress in 1986 to honor Senator Barry Goldwater, who served his country for 56 years as a soldier and statesman, including 30 years of service in the U.S. Senate.

Uk at the Half with Robert Cass

Robert Cass, a mathematics major and the Astronaut Scholarship winner, was the subject of last Saturday’s UK at the Half during the NJIT basketball game.

Mathematician Who Cracked Century-old Math Problem Speaking at UK

The Hayden Howard Lecture Series was established in 2001 to bring renowned research mathematicians to the University of Kentucky. The lecture was established by a friend of UK’s Department of Mathematics and is named in honor of retired faculty members Thomas Hayden and Henry Howard.

Mathskeller: Math Resource Center

 

The Mathskeller is located in CB63, which is next to the loading dock in the basement of White Hall Classroom Building. Open 9AM-5PM, Monday through Friday, Mathskeller is a place for any UK student to come get free tutoring, no appointment necessary. Tutors are available for students in 100-level math courses, and have excellent knowledge of math, since they are math graduate students, professors, and math majors at University of Kentucky. Many of the math Professors for 100 level classes at UK even hold their office hours in the Mathskeller.

The Mathskeller offers flexible, comfortable furniture and amenities for students to arrange to meet their group study needs, including chalkboards, a private meeting space (the Klein Room) and a small kitchen.

What’s Next: Fusing Interests in Undergraduate Research

Computer science and the St. Chad Gospels. Physics and Spanish. Math and international studies. The combination of these don't seem to make a lot of sense, but it is these interests that have shaped the undergraduate career of one UK senior.
