Nazarbayev University and University of Illinois
Mathematics Summer REU Program
As the culmination of the work by the participants during the past seven
weeks, each of the project groups will give a 40 minute oral presentation
on their project. The students will also showcase some cool (and
educational!) interactive Mathematica animations they have created during
the program and which are expected to be submitted for publication at the
Wolfram Demonstrations Project website.
June 13 - July 29, 2016
