Alexander Happ was a mathematics major and a graduate of the Math Honors Program. His honors thesis project is entitled, “Orderly E-Homotopies of Discrete Chains,” in which he studied the behavior of discrete homotopies in metric spaces. His research specifically dealt with ?-chains in the space S1 as well as criterion for the ordering of steps within these homotopies. Alex will attend the University of Kentucky for a Ph.D. in mathematics starting in the fall.
During his undergraduate career, Alex studied abroad in Hungary through the Budapest Semester in Mathematics program, presented research sponsored by the National Science Foundation at the Young Mathematicians Conference held at The Ohio State University, and undertook an internship with UT Knoxville’s National Institute of Mathematical and Biological Synthesis. Alexander was heavily involved with three choral groups on campus as well serving as treasurer for the Navigators on-campus ministry.
