Ryan Olsen, Abdullah Khan (CCNY Math Department), Summer Rich Internship Presentations IIAbdullah Khan:
My work with Professor Medvedev involved studying specific parts of a Theorem by Hrushovski in a paper by Hirotaka Kikyo “On Generic Predicates and Automorphisms” in logic. My goal over the summer was to learn the necessary abstract algebra to parse this theorem and understand it. My final report consists of the preliminary mathematics needed to do this and an exposition of the theorem by Hrushovski from the perspective of an introductory student of mathematics.
Ryan Olsen:
A theoretical cryptographic scheme based upon sending a string of bits, 0 and 1.
This protocol circumvents the computational hardness assumptions found in most cryptosystems used today, although with a slight loss in accuracy. Its implementation and further improvements will be discussed.

Math Club (Math Club), Math Club Welcome Back PartyWe will be meeting this day to discuss what kinds of events you might want to see the Math Club host, as well as various opportunities for undergraduate students like the department's new 4+1 joint Bachelor's/Master's degree program. Come grab some pizza and meet some other math enthusiasts!

Jason Redman (CCNY Math Department), The Seven Bridges of KonigsbergIn 1736, Leonhard Euler was given a problem to which he said there is no solution. This problem laid the foundations of graph theory and prefigured the idea of topology. We will talk about this problem, which has no solution, and why it was so significant along with some fun explorations into the world of graph theory!

Dr. Michael D. Grossberg (GSoE / Computer Science Department), CUNY Data Science Graduate ProgramMichael Grossberg, one of the people heading CUNY's new Data Science program for Graduate Students, will be giving a talk to students interested in learning more about Data Science, opportunities in the field, and why you might be interested. This event is open to any interested students. Pizza will be served!

Dr. Ethan Akin (CCNY), "Rock, Paper, Scissors, etc."Professor Akin presents a group theoretic take on the traditional game of Rock, Paper, Scissors, and what happens when you extend the game to include even more objects. Fans of the TV show, The Big Bang Theory, will recognize the game's extension to 5 as "RockPaperScissorsLizardSpock." But what if you kept adding nerdy scifi references? How can you generalize a game to include n objects? Come find out!
