Past Project Reports

Please note that all project reports are completed within the eight-week duration of the REU. Because of the compressed time frame and students completing their reports while simultaneously trying to wrap up their research for the summer, the reports may contain work still in progress and may not be as polished as a published journal article. Many of the reports will turn into one or more papers submitted for publication after additional significant revisions. If you find any errors or have constructive feedback for the authors, please feel free to contact them or the research advisor. Such feedback will be appreciated as the students work towards the publication of their work.
