Keith Mellinger Publishes in Innovations in Incidence Geometry

Keith Mellinger, associate professor and chair of the Department of Mathematics, saw his co-authored article “Semiovals from Unions of Conics” published in the most recent issue of Innovations in Incidence Geometry.  The article completely characterizes certain types of semiovals, special structures in finite geometries that  find application as cryptologic keys.

Mellinger presented part of this work as an invited speaker at the 14th annual Discrete Math Days conference in Fort Collins, Colo.
