Mathematics major Seth Unruh worked with David Housman on a Maple Scholars project characterizing envy-free allocations in an inheritance problem.
Maple Scholars is an eight-week summer program that gives students the opportunity to participate in independent research projects alongside Goshen College faculty of various disciplines. Scholars keep each other informed of their progress in weekly seminars, and the program ends with a celebration involving a public poster session, presentations, and a dinner.
Seth’s final report can be accessed from David Housman’s Undergraduate Research Page. A revised version of Seth’s report was published in the Rose-Hulman Undergraduate Math Journal, Vol. 10, Issue 2, 2009.
