Luke Harmon 
TITLE: A settheoretic foundation of mathematical induction
ABSTRACT: We will use GodelBernays set theory, with the 'standard' axiom of infinity replaced by Tarski's infinity axiom, to rigorously construct the set of natural numbers. This construction will then be used to justify the ubiquitous Induction Principle.

Coding Theory  Error correcting codes: A special look at the ReedMuller Codes
ABSTRACT:The purpose of my presentation is to focus on linear codes and conclude with a special look at a family of codes (the ReedMuller Codes) defined recursively with interesting properties and easy code decoding algorithms.

James Parmenter 
Graphs of Leavitt Path Algebras: A natural equivalence relation on finite acyclic directed graphs arises from the graded isomorphisms between finite dimensional Leavitt path algebras. We will identify graphtheoretic properties for which each equivalence class contains a unique possessing these properties.

Tracey Moreland 
Gravitational Effects on Blood Flow Velocity: How fast does blood flow through the arteries with each heart beat? In this presentation I will look at Womersley flow, a classical approach to calculating blood flow velocity. This approach assumes flow through a rigid tube, and uses concepts from fluid mechanics to model the flow velocity. Bessel functions and the NavierStokes equations are used in the model, and Fourier series are used to model the pressure gradient function. I will also examine an extension to the model to include gravitational effects on blood flow. Results will be given for various gravitational fields and for different animals.
