I am researching [http://reu.mscs.mu.edu/index.php/(i,j)-step_competition_graphs ''(i,j)-step competition graphs''] while attending the ten-week Marquette REU; my mentor is [http://www.marquette.edu/mscs/facstaff-factor.shtml Dr. Kim A.S. Factor]. I will, initially, be doing background reading with Carissa Babcock and then we will branch into our own research questions. As my research becomes more personalized, I will contribute more to this description. My weekly log can be found below.

I felt having a list of the background reading I am doing would be helpful. Hence, I have created one below. These readings include the ones Dr. Factor gave me and the ones I have found. Note: if a link is missing, the reading is either from a textbook or I was unable to find a link.

Concerning my research, this week was relatively uninteresting. That is, I spent most of my time trying to find literature (beyond what Dr. Factor gave me), working through background readings, and finding a good work area. Of those three tasks, I spent most of my time on finding a good work area (it was my top priority); I can happily say I completed this task. I cannot wait to really dig into my research--make it past the background reading.

Project Description

I am researching (i,j)-step competition graphs while attending the ten-week Marquette REU; my mentor is Dr. Kim A.S. Factor. I will, initially, be doing background reading with Carissa Babcock and then we will branch into our own research questions. As my research becomes more personalized, I will contribute more to this description. My weekly log can be found below.

Background Readings

I felt having a list of the background reading I am doing would be helpful. Hence, I have created one below. These readings include the ones Dr. Factor gave me and the ones I have found. Note: if a link is missing, the reading is either from a textbook or I was unable to find a link.

Project Log

Reflection: End of Week 1

Concerning my research, this week was relatively uninteresting. That is, I spent most of my time trying to find literature (beyond what Dr. Factor gave me), working through background readings, and finding a good work area. Of those three tasks, I spent most of my time on finding a good work area (it was my top priority); I can happily say I completed this task. I cannot wait to really dig into my research--make it past the background reading.

I accomplished my goals for this week. I attended various meetings, orientations, and finished the BioMath module, among others. I intend on furthering my research this weekend. Specifically, I hope to read multiple papers and complete chapter 3 from Applied Combinatorics. Next week, I'll be meeting Carissa on Tuesday, and we'll finally discuss the material Dr. Factor gave us; I'm excited.

Day 1 (6/5/17)

  • Finished reading chapter 3 from Applied Combinatorics
  • Created a LaTex document where I am writing my notes on Applied Combinatorics--a link to it is here, please note it is still in progress

  • Configured the printer in room 410
  • Finished formatting my personal wiki and began a rough draft of the project's wiki
  • Confirmed a meeting with Carissa tomorrow, 6/6, for 8:30 AM before the ethics training.

Day 2 (6/6/17)

  • Attended meeting with Carissa at 8:00AM
  • Attended ethical research training at 9:00AM
  • Handed off Applied Combinatorics to Carissa for reading on Graph theory
