I am currently a senior Mathematics major/Business minor at
Elon University and will be graduating in May 2002. This work
originally started in my Senior Seminar class under the mentorship
of Dr. Crista Coles. After the class ended, I continued to do
research because I truly enjoyed what I was doing and was
supported by the Elon University A.L. Hook Endowment.
This paper was presented at the Conference for Undergraduate
Women in Mathematics at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in
February 2002 and at the Joint Meeting of the MAA and AMS in
March 2002. My future plans consist of attending graduate school
next year in an Applied Math or Operations Research program.
