Mathematical Contest in Modeling (MCM)
Vinit Ranjan, Kelly Zhang, and Junmo Ryang are a group of prospective math majors who all met in high school at the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics, where they first competed in MCM, but on separate teams. This year, they came together on one team to achieve the finalist ranking. The crux of their project involved a computational model of varying amounts of self driving cars and their effects on driving conditions. They ran the model many times to get data from which they performed further analysis.
