Steven Carter graduated from Birmingham-Southern College in 2012 with a B.S. in mathematics and physics. The present work was conducted to fulfill the senior capstone research requirement in mathematics. Concurrently, he produced novel work on statistical gamma-ray transitions for the capstone research requirement in physics following his participation in a nuclear physics REU at Duke University in the summer of 2011. Carter received the Presidential Fellowship and is now a Ph.D. student at the Georgia Institute of Technology School of Physics at which he plans to study theoretical quantum mechanics. Send Email
