Undergraduate Research Presentations

The following undergraduate research in mathematics were presented in a forum organized by the Mathematics Department of Ateneo de Manila University last Monday, March 10, 2008:

1. Philippine Landslide Dynamics: A Mathematical and Computational Study Using Cellular Automata and the Minimization Algorithm- Timothy James L. Yusun (4 BS-Math). Adviser: Dr. Rafael Saldaña.

2. Prediction of Crashes in the Philippine Stock Market Using Log-Periodic Analysis -- Miguel Karlo R. De Jesus (4 BSM-AMF). Adviser: Dr. Jose Marasigan.

3. A Computational Study on the Guimaras Oil Spill Dynamics Using Lattice Gas Cellular Automata, Watershed Transform and Parallel Computing --Patricia Lorenzo, Rhena Lelleen Plagata, Paolo Niccolo Santos (4 BS-AMC). Adviser: Dr. Rafael Saldaña.

4. Serial Implementation of Benjord's Law for Detecting Potential Election Fraud--Daphne Regina Toledo, Jonalyn Valencia (4 BS-AMC). Adviser: Dr. Felix Muga II.

5. An Implementation of Linsker's Neural Network Demonstrating the Emergence of Spatial-
opponent Cells in the Brain -- Rosary Anne David, Regina Marie Frez, Jade Rachele Garcia (4 BS-AMC). Adviser: Dr. Raymond Melton.

Two of the research groups were under my supervision: (1) Philippine Landslide Dynamics and (2) Guimaras Oil Spill
