Math Major awarded Fellowship

Stuart Lathrop has been awarded a CLAS Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity Fellowship for this year. Mr. Lathrop, who is a senior math major, won the $1400 fellowship for his proposal entitled Contributions to the Foundations of the Theory of Transcendental Numbers. He is writing an extensive survey on the theorem of Gelfand and Schneider asserting that αβ is transcendental whenever α is an algebraic number number different from 0 and 1, and β is an irrational algebraic number.  This project grew out of Stuart’s Mathematics Capstone paper on transcendental numbers.  He will present his work at the CUGR Showcase in the spring.  He is being advised on the project by Chip Snyder and Andrew Knightly.
