Professor Christopher French cowrote an article, "Hankel Transforms of Linear Combinations of Catalan Numbers" with math majors Michael Dougherty, Benjamin Saderholm, and Wenyang Qian, all math majors in the class of 2012. The article appeared on April 20 in the Journal of Integer Sequences, Vol. 14 (2011), Article 11.5.1. In this paper, the authors consider the result of applying a certain operation called the Hankel Transform to certain sequences of numbers obtained in a natural way from the famous Catalan number sequence.

February 19, 2011, Grinnell will send a team of competitors to Iowa State University (Ames) for the Iowa Collegiate Mathematics Competition. Do you enjoy working on math problems with other people? There are no specific math prerequisites. Our team will be organized by David Romano; contact him by February 8 to participate. Contact him for more information about the contest or visit http://www.central.edu/maa/contest/
What began as a course commemorating the bicentennial of the French Revolution evolved into a 20-year friendship.
Two Grinnell students recently won awards for research presentations at the Iowa Physiological Society (IPS) annual meeting in Des Moines. IPS provides networking opportunities for physiologists in applied research and teaching.
“The IPS experience gives the students an opportunity to interact with undergraduate peers in a local setting before potential attendance and presentation on a broader level,” said Clark Lindgren, professor of biology who encouraged the biology students to attend.
The Libraries wish to thank the faculty for their hard work and time during the Serials Review that took place last academic year. Over a period of several months, faculty collectively reviewed every Library journal and database subscription and recommended a large number of changes. As a result of those changes, the Libraries gained the budget flexibility to add a significant number of new journal and database subscriptions and an additional pay-per-view service.
