We are dedicated to making mathematics accessible and fun to all Cornell students, and to enhancing the experience of undergraduate math study.
Various talks given by Cornell students and faculty
Weekly meetings in Mallot 5th Floor Lounge (Mallot 532) 6pm on Thursdays consisting of puzzles or game sessions, always with pizza.
Annual Kieval Lectures delivered by prominent mathematicians from other institutions.

Mersenne primes are primes that are one less than a power of two. They are very useful for forming even perfect numbers, but very useless for RSA encryption. Besides Euler's enhanced trial factoring and the Lucas-Lehmer test, we haven't made much progress at understanding them. Millions of CPUs are currently searching of those primes brute-force, but no one knows if we will find another.
Undergraduate Math Club
Each speaker will give short talks. Come taste a variety of different topics! AA: A fractal staircase helps us understand many physical phenomena. NJ: Symmetry is adored by mathematicians, but did you know it's loved by chemists too? DL: Math inspires String Theory, and vice versa. We will explore some of these connections. MM: We will solve a pendulum's equation of motion exactly. JT: Will we find another Mersenne prime?
Cornell Math Department
From 4-5pm in Mallot 532 there will be an information session for the SPUR and REU programs hosted by Cornell.
