Uncovering the Broad Applications of Two-dimensional Number Sorting

Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog! Towards the end of last month, I actually traveled to San Francisco where I got to explore more about the importance of discrete math and its many wonderful applications. I was very fortunate to visit DreamWorks and discover that graphic designers need math in making animations. When thinking…

Efficient Number Sorting Continues with More Testing and Proofs

Hi everyone, I hope you all had a great Fourth of July celebration and enjoyed some fireworks! A month has gone by since I last gave a formal definition of what it means to route numbers in a grid by using marbles to illustrate, as well as introducing the concept of bandwidth (b).


The Routing Number of Marbles on a Grid

Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog! This month I spent most of my time studying two published papers, routing permutations on graphs via matchings and routing numbers of cycles, complete bipartite graphs, and hypercubes. The two papers studied the routing numbers of general graphs, which may give some idea on how to solve our routing problems on grids.


Efficient Number Sorting in a Grid

Hi everyone, welcome to my honors fellowship blog! My name is Jamie Chen and I’m a rising senior double majoring in math and marketing. In this first blog, I would like to give you a little idea of the project I will work on.
