The following four final projects were turned in by the four undergraduates who took math 252. None of the graduate students in the course were required to do projects. Jennifer's paper is the most polished and the best overall. Dimitar and Tseno are somewhat unfinished, but both are very interesting. Seth's is the only one that verifies something unknown before, and only hints at the huge amount of computation that went on behind the scenes.
