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.
Receive a stipend of $4000, free on campus housing and an allowance for meals.
Receive three undergraduate college credits from Boise State University.
Attend guest lectures by scientific workshops and seminars addressing mathematical techniques used in information security and genome
remodeling, research presentation skills, computational skills and scientific writing.
Be part of the summer community of collaborators, students and faculty,from all STEM disciplines and programs on campus.

"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."
