Polyhedron issue focused on undergraduate research

Submitted by Chip Nataro / Lafayette College on Wed, 07/29/2020 - 14:40

It is hard for me to believe that five years ago I was writing up a manuscript for submission to a special issue of Polyhedron focused on undergraduate research. Jared Paul of Villanova University and Rob LaDuca of Michigan State served as guest editors for this issue. Their initial goal was an issue with around 25 papers. They shattered that goal putting together a collection of 63 papers!
