Collaborative Math Research

Collaborative research gets published in Mathematics Magazine

Devyn Lesher, a junior mathematics major, and Chris Lynd, professor of mathematical and digital sciences, recently had their research paper accepted for publication in Mathematics Magazine — a widely read, peer-reviewed journal. The paper is titled Convergence Results for the Class of Periodic Left Nested Radicals, and it should be in print in the December 2016 issue of Mathematics Magazine.

This research was made possible by two Undergraduate Research Scholarship and Creative Activities (URSCA) Awards from the Center for Undergraduate Research at Bloomsburg University. These awards provided stipends support for Devyn during the summer of 2014 and the summer of 2015.
