The Unlikely Friendship of Math and Science

Monday, October 29, 2018 at 7pm in Boehm 261

Speaker: Ben Orlin, the author of "Math with Bad Drawings: Illuminating the Ideas That Shape Our Reality" as well as the blog https://mathwithbaddrawings.com/

Abstract: Math is supposed to be useful. And yet mathematicians are always chasing imaginary visions, abstractions divorced from reality. Could that possibly prove useful to science? Actually, yes. In a big way.

This talk is intended for undergraduate students, high school students, their families, and members of the community!
