Student Work

Senior Distinction Project: Applied Mathematics and Modeling

Daniel Helkey ‘13

Directed study will consist of applying mathematical concepts to the problem of how to efficiently board an aircraft. Emphasis will be placed on mathematical techniques such as linear algebra and statistical distributions. Simulation with computer packages will also be introduced. Evaluation will include weekly progress updates, as well as a semester paper describing methods explored. Simulation in MATLAB is another end goal of the directed study.
