Title: A common pathway to cancer: oncogenic mutations abolish p53 oscillations. Abstract: The tumor suppressor p53 oscillates in response to DNA double-strand breaks, a behavior that has been suggested to be essential to its anti-cancer function. Nearly all human cancers have genetic alterations in the p53 pathway; a number of these alterations have been shown to […]
Given votes for candidates, what is the best way to determine the winner of the election, if some of the votes have been corrupted or miscounted? As we saw in Florida in 2000, where a difference of 537 votes determined the president of the United States, the electoral college system does not seem to be […]

Radial solutions to semilinear elliptic partial differential equations (Professor Alfonso Castro, HMC)
Using elementary methods from differential equations and analysis we will consider the existence and multiplicity of solutions to semilinear partial differential equations with boundary conditions.
