UMD Computer Science students win DKC3, DigiKey's Collegiate Computing Competition 2014!



Three UMD CS students, Jonathan Beaulieu, Bridget Coughlin, and Scott Redig, formed the team Pointless Pointer and competed against twenty-three other teams from around the area. For the first time in the competition's history, two teams tied for first place after the word, short, and long problem sections: UMD and Bemidji State University. UMD scored very well on the tie-breaker problem to win the competition.

Professor Doug Dunham' Artwork on Exhibit


Three prints, designed by Professor Doug Dunham and John Shier, were selected to be displayed at the conference art exhibit at the Bridges 2014 Conference in Seoul Korea, August 14-19, 2014.
"Yin-Yangs in a Circle",
"Circles in a Yin-Yang", and
"Yin-Yangs in Yin-Yang"
can be viewed at the Mathematical Art Gallery at:
http://gallery.bridgesmathart.org/exhibitions/2014-bridges-conference/ddunham.

One of them, "Circles in a Yin-Yang" was chosen as the background for the
cover of both the conference proceedings and the art exhibit catalog.

The cover of the proceedings can be seen at:

In addition, the three prints were donated as Object 4,
"Aesthetic Fractals", to the IMU

(International Mathematical Union) "DonAuction"
(http://donauction.org/), an auction to raise funds for the IMU
program called “Adopt a Mathematics Graduate Student”, to help young,
talented students from developing countries to gain access to assistantships
in other developing countries.
The three prints raised $500 for the program.
