#### Description

**Mathematical Modeling in Combustion**(Dr. Laura Gross)

In this presentation we examine a mathematical description of a particular phenomenon in combustion.**The Births of a Tree**(Dr. Shannon Lockard)

In this talk we will discuss a restricted partition sequence. After a brief introduction to the sequence and its importance, we will discuss an intriguing question about “births” in the sequence.**Elliptic Curve Cryptography**(Dr. Ward Heilman)

How can Elliptic Curves be used to generate a secure, efficient public key cryptosystem?
