ab: Introduction: Much has been said and written about undergraduate research
in mathematics: about its possibility, about its intrinsic quality (or
lack of), about different models for facilitating it, and about its
value to students, mentors, and even departments. Very little has been
written about the systemic effect of undergraduate research on the
mathematics profession and the development of mathematics as a whole.
What follows is a first, necessarily speculative, attempt to begin to
fill this gap.
