Mount A students attend APICS Conference
November 7, 2006
SACKVILLE, NB — In October, 10 Mount Allison students participated in the 30th annual joint Mathematics/Statistics/Computer Science APICS conference at Cape Breton University in Sydney, NS.
On Friday afternoon, two Mount Allison teams, one consisting of Randy Rose (Riverview, NB) and Matt Chiasson (Bathurst, NB), and the other of Jackson Feng (Toronto, ON) and Greg Brown (Yarmouth, NS), participated in a challenging Mathematics Problem Solving competition. On the computer science side, Mount Allison again had two teams in the competition, consisting of three students each: Noel Dawe (Sackville, NB); Daniel Rasmussen (Calgary, AB); Denis St-Onge (Grand Falls, NB); Markus Baker (Lake Echo, NS); William Belanger (Caribou, ME); and Karsten Hempel (Sackville, NB). The Mount Allison teams placed well, coming in at sixth and seventh out of 17 team entries.
On Saturday, students had an opportunity to present their research results. >From Mount Allison, Randy Rose gave a talk on his summer research project called "Balanced bilinear forms on matrix and matrix-like coalgebras." At the conference banquet on Saturday evening, award winners were announced. Randy was a joint winner of the NSERC-sponsored award for best undergraduate mathematics talk.
Congratulations to all the students who represented Mount Allison so well at this meeting.
