The math and computer science joined together Dec. 15 to show off graduating seniors’ capstone projects.

Heberlein’s math on Bell’s Theorum done by Heberein.

UW-Superior senior Padraic Heberlein explained his report about Bell’s Theorem. What Heberlein found and presented was that quantum physics violates Bell’s inequality which suggests quantum entanglement.

JongYoung Choi presented on supporting vector machines and the two models that support them, the separable and non-separable Models.

Finance department major Thao Le reported on the evolution of tablets. Le went over the history, impact, and even made predictions about what’s next for tablet technology.

Tablets were initially used as a research tool before slowly transitioning into the educational and personal device known today. She also created a small website to show her findings:

Moveset decision tree in chess algorithm in Zagar’s capstone research.

Graduate student Dane Zagar presented his work which analyzed the relationship of the minimax algorithm to chess moves.

Zagar showed how complicated chess is that every move can change the ‘p values’ of players which edge them ever closer to checkmate.

Zagar is a two-time Minnesota state-wide chess champion. Zagar feels that his research is incomplete as the algorithm is insufficiently sensitive and will continue to work on it in his free time away from UWS with the help of Professor Steve Rosenburg.
