Students from U of Colorado at Boulder and Harvard triumph in SIAM's Math Contest in Modeling

The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics selected students from the University of Colorado at Boulder and Harvard University as winners of the 2006 SIAM Award in the Mathematical Contest in Modeling (MCM). The students were rewarded at the SIAM annual meeting held in Boston from July 1014, 2006. Established in 1988, the prize is awarded to two of the teams judged "Outstanding" in the annual MCM. One winning team of students is chosen for each of the problems posed in the MCM.

The 2006 winners of Problem A, The Continuous Problem: "Positioning and Moving Sprinkler Systems for Irrigation" represent the Department of Applied Mathematics at the University of Colorado at Boulder. The students are Brian Camley, Pascal Getreuer, Bradley Klingenberg and their faculty advisor Professor Bengt Fornberg. Their solution was titled "Sprinkle, Sprinkle, Little Yard."

The 2006 winners of Problem B, The Discrete Problem: "Wheelchair Access at Airports" represent the Department of Mathematics at Harvard University. The students are Benjamin Conlee, Neal Gupta, Christopher Yetter and their faculty advisor Professor Clifford H. Taubes. Their solution was titled "Profit-Maximizing Allocation of Wheelchairs in a Multi-Concourse Airport."
