Mathematics Student Connor MacKenzie's NIST Fellowship Research Results in Two Publications

Friday, December 6, 2013

Connor MacKenzie, a Westminster College a senior mathematics major at Westminster College, completed a fellowship with the National Institute of Standards and Technology during the summer of 2012. 

Mr. MacKenzie worked with Dr. Howard Cohl, mathematician in the Applied and Computational Mathematics Division of NIST, and with Dr. Hans Volkmer, faculty at University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee.

Two publications, one that has already been published and one forthcoming, have resulted from Mr. Mackenzie's fellowship:

  • "Generalizations of generating functions for hypergeometric orthogonal polynomials with definite integrals," H. S. Cohl, Connor MacKenzie and Hans Volkmer, Journal of Mathematical Analysis and Applications, 407, 2, 211-225, 15 pages, 2013.
  • "Generalizations and specializations of generating functions for Jacobi, Gegenbauer, Chebyshev and Legendre polynomials with definite integrals," H. S. Cohl and Connor MacKenzie, Journal of Classical Analysis, Volume 3, Number 1, 17-33, 2013. ( 
Mr. Mackenzie is completing his research as an all-college honors student at Westminster College and is applying to graduate programs in mathematics.
