Three students in Gustavus’s Department of Mathematics and Computer Science presented their honors thesis research recently. The photo shows Josh Knutson at the college-wide Celebration of Creative Inquiry presenting his work on the use of subdivision surfaces for three-dimensional graphics. Knutson also presented the work to the department, earning honors in both mathematics and computer science for his work under Mike Hvidsten’s supervision. Another student with a double-duty honors thesis was Sarah Cowles. For her honors majors in mathematics and biology, she presented a mathematical analysis of lion vocalizations, supervised by Tom LoFaro and Jon Grinnell. Alex Wauck’s honors thesis in computer science, supervised by Max Hailperin, merged two previously separate program-improving transformations. All three students will be among those graduating this Sunday.
