Treviño wins Lehmer Prize for favorite talk at a conference

Assistant Professor of Mathematics and Computer Science Enrique Treviño won one of the 2017 Emma and Dick Lehmer prizes given to the favorite talks of the West Coast Number Theory Conference.

The Lehmer Prize was awarded to three of the 32 talks presented.  One award was for the favorite talk by undergraduates won by Kelly Emrich and Clark Lyons for their talk titled “Norm-Euclidean Ideal Classes in Galois Cubic Fields”, another award was for the favorite talk by a conference newcomer given to Lee Troupe for his talk “Counting subgroups of the multiplicative group”. Treviño’s prize was for his talk “Counting Perfect Polynomials”, where he discussed research done with Paul Pollack from the University of Georgia and U. Caner Cengiz, while he was a Richter scholar at Lake Forest. Caner, LFC Class of 2017, is currently pursuing a Master’s degree in Mathematics in Turkey.

The West Coast Number Theory Conference is an annual number theory conference held in December, usually in California.
