David Roberts, professor of mathematics, was recently awarded a three- year National Science Foundation (NSF) research grant to support his work in number theory. His particular topic is a class of very unusual polynomials with origin in work around 1900 by the German mathematician Adolf Hurwitz. Roberts first became interested in this topic through a joint paper published in 2015 with Akshay Venkatesh of Stanford University.
