Congratulations to ERE's 2014 Math Modeling Teams!

The Consortium for Mathematics and Its Applications (COMAP) just announced the results from the 2014 Mathematical Modeling Contest.  Once again, two student teams from the HSU Environmental Resources Engineering (ERE) department participated in this four day long contest.  Competing against thousands of universities, each team produced a report summarizing their solution to one of three possible problems.

The team consisting of Brian Wallace, Tyler Martin, and Aaron Perez selected a problem that required they build and analyze a mathematical model to analyze the performance of the "Keep-To-The-Right-Except-To-Pass" rule in light and heavy traffic.  The team's report was awarded the score of Meritorious.  Only 25 (0.4%) of the 6755 teams working on this problem scored higher, and 90% of the teams received lower scores.

The team consisting of Ryan P. Dunne, Nicholas A. Campbell, and Zachary Ruiz selected a problem that required building a network model for determining influence in a large co-author network and measuring impact within a set of foundational papers in network science. This problem required teams to mine a large data set and understand concepts from the informational sciences to build an effective model for these complex phenomena. The team's report was also awarded the score of Meritorious.  Only 11 (1%) of the 1028 teams working on this problem scored higher, and 86% of the teams received lower scores.

Congratulations to the members of both teams for their high achievement in this event.  We appreciate your efforts which bring recognition to the Environmental Resources Engineering Department and to Humboldt State University.
