The article, published in the April 2015 edition of Mathematics Magazine, was recognized for expository excellence among articles in the publication. The award was presented at the 2016 MathFest event held in August in Columbus, Ohio, where the printed awards program noted, “The results presented in this paper are interesting and the visualizations are impressive. The clever choice of examples leads the reader through the complicated behavior of iterated complex-valued functions.”

Barnes and her co-authors, Clinton Curry, Elizabeth Russell and Lisbeth Schaubroeck, share a $1,000 prize.
