New theories reveal the nature of numbers
By Carol Clark
For centuries, some of the greatest names in math have tried to make sense of partition numbers, the basis for adding and counting. Many mathematicians added major pieces to the puzzle, but all of them fell short of a full theory to explain partitions. Instead, their work raised more questions about this fundamental area of math.
Emory mathematician Ken Ono is unveiling new theories that answer these famous old questions.

|Number Theory REU at Emory|
|Published Date: 2010-11-09|
Ken Ono, an Asa Griggs Candler Professor of Mathematics, will be running an NSF funded Research Experience for Undergraduates in 2011. The program, entitled Number Theory: Primes and Partitions, and Modular Forms, will be a 7-8 program for 8-10 talented undergraduate math majors. Professor Ono has been running REUs for many years, and the experience he brings to Emory will inspire motivated mathematics majors. Since 2005, his REU students have won three Frank and Brennie Morgan Prizes (awarded to the best undergraduate mathematics major in the nation), and three Alice T. Schafer Prizes (awarded to the best undergraduate woman in mathematics in the nation). For more information on the program, see www.mathcs.emory.edu/~ono/REUs/>
