T-Dual Systems in String Theory
Work by rising sophomore Emma Patmore as part of the PRISM program (presented on campus). Emma learned the basic concepts of string theory (and many underlying physical concepts) and the syntax of the Mathematica computer algebra system. Building on earlier work by Alex Lundquist, she expanded his Mathematica code for generating T-duality transformations in string theory and applied it to find previously unknown dual systems.
