The undergraduate research of Stephen Henrich, Jill Jessee, Blaise Mikels, and Jean Mullen was recently published in The International Journal of Difference Equations. This publication was co-authored by Assistant Professor of Mathematics Heidi Berger, Assistant Professor of Biology Clint Meyer and David Beresford (Trent University). The paper was titled Application of Time Scales Calculus to the Growth and Development in Populations of Stomoxys calcitrans (Diptera: Muscidae).
The research was started in Summer 2010 during the Dr. Albert H. & Greta A. Bryan Summer Research Program at Simpson College and a grant from the Iowa Academy of Science. It was completed during the 2010-11 academic year with additional support from a CURM mini-grant.
This group also presented their research at CUR’s Posters on the Hill session in Washington D.C. in April 2011.
