Student Dr. Kamila Larripa and students Mathematics

Nine HSU mathematics students participated in the Consortium for Math and its Applications’ (COMAP) annual international math modeling contest Feb. 10. The contest challenges teams of college students to clarify, analyze, and propose solutions to open-ended problems. The HSU students who participated were: Miriam Garai, Michael Malocha, Marika Leitner, Tyler Mobray, Andrew Harter, Molly Shea, Stephanie Corah, Eric Stuck and Paul Mullan. The students came from a variety of math backgrounds, including those who had just completed Calculus to upper division math and physics students. Contest results are available in April.

Faculty Steve Railsback, Matt Johnson Mathematics

Drs. Steve Railsback (Mathematics) and Matt Johnson (Wildlife) collaborated on a paper recently accepted for publication in the “Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.” The paper presents a mathematical model on the controversial trade-off between allocating land for crop production versus conservation of biodiversity. Their model shows that, for coffee farmers, growing trees to attract birds not only benefits biodiversity, it also boosts net crop production because birds help control insect pests. The paper will be published next week.
