BA and MA honors
thesis students in the Natural Sciences and Mathematics Division presented their
research to peers and the community in a poster session
April 18 in Exley Science Center. Above, Gim
Seng Ng '08 explains his poster titled, "Critical Fidelity at the
Metal-Insulator Transition." Ng, a physics major, researches signatures
of phase transitions of wave dynamics of complex systems.
Katrina Smith-Mannschott '08 speaks about her physics-based project,
"Counting Statistics of a Bose-Einstein Condensates (BEC) in a Dimer Trap," which was co-authored by
Tsampikos Kottos, assistant professor of physics. Smith-Mannschott hopes
to create theoretical tools/methods which can describe the motion of the
BEC atoms in a two-well trap.
Henny Admoni '08 researched "Beliefs,
Desires and Intentions for Decision Making in Dynamical Agents" with
Eric Aaron, assistant professor of computer science.
Poster session visitors had the opportunity
to witness a liquid nitrogen ice cream demonstration at the event.
