Holy Cross Students Cited In Baltimore Exhibit

A team of Holy Cross students, and students from Furman University, who helped create an electronic edition of a tenth century manuscript of the great mathematician Archimedes, are recognized in an exhibit running at the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore through Jan. 1, 2012.

The exhibit, titled “Lost & Found: The Secrets of Archimedes,” includes information regarding the manuscript’s preservation and digitization efforts.  The digital edition of the manuscript was released in October 2008. A photo of the Holy Cross team is featured in a section devoted to project contributors.
