Nurul Wahyuni Master's Thesis 4/20/2016

The Chebyshev polynomials arise in several mathematical contexts such as
approximation theory, numerical integration, and differential equations.

Date: 4/20/2016
Time: 2:30PM-3:30PM
Place: 121 Armstrong Hall

Abstract:
Here we study a combinatorial interpretation of Chebyshev polynomials due to Shapiro, and we use it to give a slight variation of a combinatorial proof of Binet’s Formula due to Benjamin, Derks and Quinn. Another beautiful formula for the Fibonacci numbers involves complex roots of unity. Presently, no combinatorial proof is known. We give combinatorial proofs of some related identities as progress toward a full combinatorial proof.

2016 Capstone

Capstone Day will be April 16, 2016 from 10:30am to 1:00pm. Capstone Day is a time for mathematics majors, who are finishing up their senior mathematics projects (capstones), to present their research to WVU mathematics students and faculty. The presentations are poster presentations and we encourage other mathematics students to attend this day to learn about the math capstones and see examples of what others are doing.

The schedule will be the following:

9:30 - 9:45 Students will set up their capstones
9:45 - 10:15 Graduating Capstone Students will take a computerized survey
10:15 - 10:30 Coffee Break and light refreshments
10:30 - 12:00 Capstone Presentations
12:00 - 1:00 Lunch

Please mark your calendar and join us for this event. Parents and friends are welcome.

He has 10 year experience in valuation, projection and modeling of life, health, and long term care products.
In his talk, he will cover the following topics:

1) Introduce a little bit about the company/internship program/actuarial student program

2) Talk about the different functions in the actuarial department (Life vs P&C, Consulting firm vs. Insurance company, Valuation vs. Pricing, etc.)

3) What would be a typical day for an actuary?

4) What are the factors to be considered when company hire from college graduates (Exams, Other technical and non-technical skills)?

5) Q&A
