Dr. Sarah Mason's
research group was invited to spend two weeks at the Mathematical
Sciences Research Institute (MSRI) in Berkeley, California through the
Summer Research for Women in Mathematics Program. Her collaborators
include faculty at CUNY, Lehigh, and Marshall.
Their focus is on Macdonald
polynomials, which are multivariable symmetric polynomials
intersecting many different areas of mathematics including
representation theory, combinatorics, and algebraic geometry.
