Winner of the 2004 Paul Hessler Award for outstanding achievement in mathematics or computer science and the first student to graduate with the new computational science minor, Brenton K. Bostick ’04 added another honor to his impressive list of accomplishments.
who interned at NCR and at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base during his collegiate
career, recently presented a paper that examined an age-old mathematical problem
at the 2004 New Kind of Science (NKS) conference in April.
Bostick wrote the paper after attending an NKS seminar followed by a three-week NKS international summer school program.
Stephen Wolfran, designer of the Mathematica software used on campus and author of New Kind of Science, sponsors the program. Titled “An NKS Approach to the 3n+1 Problem,” the paper extends the research conducted by hundreds of mathematicians throughout the years.
