Rhodes faculty and students participated in the 2024 Joint Mathematics Meetings (JMM) held Jan. 3-6 in San Francisco, CA. The annual event, with more than 17 organizations participating, is known as the world’s largest mathematics gathering. 

The American Mathematical Society is one of many hosts for the JMM and is the manager of the meeting’s logistics. More than 5,500 registered for the 2024 event, which provided a range of research presentations, educational exchange, professional panel discussions, and gathering opportunities for colleagues, collaborators, and students.

Presentations made by participants from Rhodes include:

Faculty Member:

  • Dr. Erin Bodine, Modeling Growth & Reproduction in Bromeliads: An Ongoing Interdisciplinary Collaboration with Multiple Undergraduate Research Projects

Students (presenting research conducted with Dr. Christopher Seaton):

  • Luke Guidry, Investigating Spectral Behavior Through Digraph Move Sequences
  • Lillian Whitesell, Integrating O(n)-invariant Functions via the Hilbert Embedding
  • Hannah-Elsie Meit, Computing Formulae for Γ-Orbifold Euler Characteristics of O(2) Representations

In addition, Daniel Trudell and Triet Ha were listed on the program as coauthors of submissions done with and presented by individuals at other colleges and universities.
