The D. E. Shaw group is a global investment and technology development firm with an international reputation for financial innovation and technological leadership. Headquartered in New York, the D. E. Shaw group encompasses a number of closely related entities with more than 1,000 employees and approximately $32 billion in aggregate investment capital. Our activities range from deployment of investment strategies based on mathematical models or human expertise to the acquisition of existing companies and the financing or development of new ones. The firm employs a disproportionate number of the world's leading computer scientists and mathematicians, many of whom joined the firm directly from leading college and university math and science programs, and a number of whom are former ARML competitors. Given the challenges of its work, the firm has a particular interest in promoting excellence in mathematics. For this reason, the D. E. Shaw group is especially proud of its years-long association with ARML and of its current sponsorship of the national competition.

Pi Mu Epsilon (www.pme-math.org) is dedicated to the promotion of mathematics and recognition of students who successfully pursue mathematical understanding. To promote mathematics, the National Pi Mu Epsilon Council sponsors an annual conference in conjunction with the Mathematics Association of America's (MAA) annual MathFest. Traditionally, this conference occurs the first weekend of August. Undergraduate members of Pi Mu Epsilon are encouraged to give a 15 minute presentation on a mathematical topic of interest. The content of the presentation does not have to include original research. Although some presentations may impart new results, the majority often show results of exploration of a topic beyond what is traditionally covered in an undergraduate class. Feel free to contact an officer to verify a topic is suitable for presentation.
