### Students Compete in William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition

May 3rd 2017

At he beginning of December 2016, Allison Ganger (’18), Keith Irvin (’19), Diptajyoti Mukherjee (19′), Jonathan Goodman (’19), Aubrey Collins (19′), and Christopher Miller (’19) took part in the 77th annual William Lowell Putnam Mathematical competition. The competition itself is a six hour long exam consisting for twelve exceedingly difficult questions covering a wide range of mathematical concepts. This past year the exam was taken by 4,164 of the top undergraduate mathematics students in the nation. The students from Allegheny College prepared for the exam during weekly practice sessions throughout the Fall 2016 semester overseen by Professor Craig Dodge (Mathematics).

Allison Ganger, Keith Irvin, and Dipta Mukherjee represented Allegheny College as the official team for the school. There combined scores were ranked against the other school teams in the nation. As a result of their hard work, Allegheny placed 112 out of 568 schools that competed.

### Peter Brooksbank: “What Do You Mean, It’s Hard?”

January 17th 2017

Peter Brooksbank, professor of mathematics at Bucknell University, will deliver his address titled “What Do You Mean, It’s Hard?” on Thursday, Feb. 2, at 4 p.m. in Quigley Hall’s Henderson Auditorium as part of the Spring 2017 Math Speaker Series at Allegheny College. The event is free and open to the public.

Brooksbank will discuss what is known as the “P ≠ NP Problem,” arguably the most important open problem in mathematics and computer science.

Since 1972, the Math Speaker Series has brought Allegheny students into contact with many nationally and internationally prominent mathematicians. Brooksbank holds a doctorate from Oregon University. His research interests include computational algebra, finite groups and combinatorics.

The address is sponsored by the William Beazell Memorial Fund.
