Dr. Nathan Fox, assistant professor of mathematics, has been accepted to the American Mathematical Society’s Mathematics Research Communities Conference titled ”Trees in Many Contexts.”
A tree is a mathematical structure that can be analyzed as either a data structure or a graph. A data structure is defined by its elements while a graph is concerned with the links between the elements. Trees are applicable in many fields including biology, chemistry, physics, data science and, of course, mathematics, to name a few.
The conference will give Fox an opportunity to explore the field deeply and build up his research network. The conference will be held June 5 – June 11, 2022 in Java Center, NY.
