Buck of Zanesville Presents Research at Mathematical Association of America Meeting, Accepted into California State University, Fresno Research Program

Leah BuckLeah Buck, of Zanesville, attended and presented research at the Spring Meeting of the Ohio Section of the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) at Ohio Northern University on April 9th. She is a junior mathematics major at Muskingum University and a Philo High School graduate.

Buck was one of only two undergraduate students on the April 9th program, which was predominated by faculty and graduate-level presentations.

Buck’s research focused on differential equations, Constructing a Universal Algebraic Differential Equation Based on Certain Trigonometric Relationships. She is under the guidance of Muskingum University Professor of Mathematics Dr. Richard Daquila.

Buck is one of eight students, out of 330 applicants from across the country, to be accepted into the Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) in Mathematics program at California State University, Fresno. That experience is an eight-week long program held in June and July.

Her work there will be to attempt to develop new, and improve existing methods of using multiplier sequences to locate the zeros of special classes of analytic functions.
