The UB Department of Mathematics is pleased to announce that Giacomo Scilla is the recipient of the 2023 Summer Math Scholarship. Together with faculty mentor Dr. Gino Biondini, Scilla formulated an undergraduate research project aimed at understanding the classification of two-dimensional wave patterns governed by the solutions of the Kadomtsev-Petviashvili equation, with the ultimate goal of deriving efficient methods to generate large ensembles of such solutions.

Our undergraduate research award, established in 2017, is a result of a scholarship endowment by The Summer Math Foundation, Inc. of Amherst, New York. The endowment supports a six-week, full-time summer program for the selected undergraduate student to work with a UB Mathematics faculty mentor, and includes a stipend in the range of $4,000.
