Mathematics Association of America honors BYU undergraduate

The Mathematical Association of America recently selected Julian Tay, a mathematics major at Brigham Young University, as a winner of its 2007 National Undergraduate Student Poster Session.

Tay was awarded $100 for his efforts.

The contest took place in New Orleans in January during the AMS/MAA Joint Meeting. Tay’s poster, “Topical Derivatives and Duality,” reflected his research with the BYU Topical Geometry and Algebra Group. The poster is on display outside the math lab in the James E. Talmage Building on campus.

“The AMS/MAA Joint Meeting is the biggest professional meeting in mathematics every year,” said Tyler Jarvis, professor of mathematics and Tay’s adviser. “Winning the poster contest is the best accomplishment you could expect from an undergraduate.”
