COMPLEXITY ACROSS DISCIPLINES (CAD)
The program is a nine week summer program in which undergraduate students experience independent research in combinatorics, number theory, algebra, and game theory motivated by applications to search optimization, information security, or genome
biology. The program aims to immerse undergraduate students of diverse backgrounds in all facets of research in mathematics, and in applications to information security or the life sciences in a culture of close and daily collaboration with faculty. The program is supported by the National Science Foundation and Boise State University.

"This program is engaging,
challenging, and rigorous. I really cannot express in words how thankful
I am for this program and just how surprised I am by the experience.
I've learned so much, and I've had such wonderful intellectual
conversations with my peers. I'm really going to miss the math community
of this REU program."
