Research Experience for Undergraduates

In the summer of 2014, the inaugural cohort of students completed research under Dr. Abdulla's REU program. The group was divided among three research topics: Inverse Stefan Problems (ISP), Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations (NPDE), and Dynamical Systems and Chaos Theory (DSCT). Each group learned a lot of necessary background, developed intuitional and rigorous proof skills, and made advances at the frontiers in their respective research topics
