Some Summer Mathematics
Let's test your crime solving skills:
You just discovered that your favorite elementary school teacher had her purse stolen. Fortunately, she has been able to narrow the possible suspects to Lillian, Judy, David, Theo or Margaret. Using your best interrogation skills, you question these children who each make 3 statements:
1. I didn't take the purse;
2. I have never stolen anything;
3. Theo did it.
4. I didn't take the purse;
5. I have a purse of my own;
6. Margaret knows who did it.
7. I didn't take the purse;
8. I didn't know Margaret before I enrolled in this school;
9. Theo did it.
10. I didn't take the purse;
11. Margaret did it;
12. Lillian is lying when she says I stole the purse.
13. I didn't take the purse;
14. Judy is guilty;
15. David can vouch for me because he's known me since I was born.
Later, under more professional interrogation, each child admits that 2 of their statements were true and one was false.
Assuming that this is the case, who took the purse?

Karen Kazor and Amanda Hering Present Posters at EWEA
Congratulations to one of our outstanding graduate students, Karen Kazor, and her advisor Prof. Amanda Hering!
Karen and Mandy were selected to present posters at the European Wind Energy Assocation Workshop on Wind Forecasting held at Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Karen's topic was "Statistical Identification of Local and Regional Wind Regimes" and Mandy's topic was "Short-Term Forecasting of Categorical Changes in Wind Power with Markov Chain Models". Nice job to both for some excellent research!
For more information on the EWEA Workshop, take a look at the conference website. For more information on Mandy's and Karen's research, stop by the Dept. of Applied Math & Statistics and chat for a while.
