Jonathan Mattingly's research influences NC ruling

Jonathan Mattingly, Chair of Mathematics Department

The work of James B. Duke Professor of Mathematics Jonathan Mattingly appeared in numerous media outlets this fall — including this News & Observer article — following the N.C. Supreme Court's decision that political maps for the state were unconstitutional and must be redrawn. Mattingly, who testified as an expert witness in the case, leads a nonpartisan research group "Quantifying Gerrymandering" that grew out of a project initiated by a Duke mathematics undergrad.
