David Cushing's research chosen for the CrowdMath Project

(16 January 2018)

David Cushing, a postdoctoral research at the Department of Mathematical Sciences, has had his joint paper Powerful numbers and the abc conjecture selected as part of the 2018 CrowdMath project.

CrowdMath is an open project that gives all high school and college students the opportunity to collaborate on a large research project with top-tier research mentors and an exceptional peer group.

MIT PRIMES and Art of Problem Solving are working together to create a place for students to experience research mathematics and discover ideas that did not exist before.
