**Rose-Hulman Mathematical Sciences Technical Report Series**is a preprint and informal technical report publication series for faculty and undergraduate student research in the Mathematics Department at Rose-Hulman. Student authored publications have a faculty adviser who is typically a senior thesis/project adviser or adviser for a summer research project such as the Rose-Hulman NSF-REU program. A student's undergraduate institution at the time of the research is recorded in the author information.

This series is not peer reviewed. The authors (with guidance from mentors) are responsible for the correctness of results and exposition of the papers.
