DOmath (Duke Opportunities in Mathematics) is a program for collaborative student research in all areas of mathematics. The program consists of groups of 2-4 undergraduate students working together during the summer for eight weeks on a single project, and is open to all Duke undergraduates. Each team is led by a faculty mentor assisted by a graduate student. There are social activities as well during the summer, some with students from other research programs such as PRUV. After the program students are strongly encouraged to present their work at Duke's Visible Thinking Research Symposium in April. This program is intended to complement our current PRUV program, which is aimed at facilitating research by individual students (usually rising seniors) under the mentorship of a faculty member. Here are links to information about DOmath projects and participants since the program began in 2017:
