Emory REU students win the 2014 Morgan and Schafer Prizes.
Published: 10/16/2013
Three students in the 2013 Emory REU in Number Theory will be honored at the Joint Meeting of the National Mathematical Societies in January in Baltimore. Eric Larson will be awarded the Frank and Brennie Morgan Prize, and Sarah Peluse will be awarded the Alice T. Schafer Prize. Shiyu Li will be awarded Honorable Mention in the Schafer Prize competitions. The Morgan prize, awarded jointly by the American Mathematical Society, the Mathematical Association of America, and the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, recognizes outstanding research by an undergraduate. It is widely regarded as the most prestigious prize for undergraduate mathematics research. The Schafer Prize, awarded by the Association for Women in Mathematics, recognizes outstanding undergraduate women in mathematics.

Among Professor Ono's REU participants, Larson is the fourth Morgan Prize winner, and Peluse is the fourth Schafer Prize winner.
