Making Mathematics Real: Knot Theory, Experimental Mathematics, and 3D Printing

This is a lecture at the Mathematics Association of America. To attend you will have to rsvp on the MAA website. Registration is required and opened 1/29/2014.

Abstract: For a pure mathematician, mathematics is a set of abstract constructs completely separated from reality, and using technology to explore mathematics can seem like, well, cheating. But with the rise of undergraduate research in mathematics comes a need for elementary unsolved problems that students can pursue. Modern technology can help fill this need and support exploratory, investigative mathematics, even for those of us that are old-school mathematical purists at heart. Going a step further, the recently accessible technology of 3D printing can take abstract mathematical objects and literally make them real. A 3D printing demonstration will accompany this talk. - See more at: http://www.maa.org/meetings/calendar-events/making-mathematics-real-knot-theory-experimental-mathematics-and-3d-printing#sthash.ylQVrQMw.dpuf

    I'm in Seattle until the 28th. Sounds interesting, though.

      It's a tough ticket to get since these math association events fill up quick. I try to keep up with and post some of the more interesting MAA events with time to register. Hopefully you'll join us at a future event, once you are back in town.

    Brand new member: INFP. Question ... how many others (especially NPs) LOVE silly humor? - Monty Python, Fawlty Towers, Mr. Bean, Fry & Laurie, Craig Ferguson, Conan O'Brien, etc. I'm wondering if the NP combination is tuned to silly, off-the-wall humor.

      Sorry you can't make it, Kevin. If you got a confirmed reservation remember to cancel with Katharine Merow to open up your spot. Send an email to [masked] with the subject line "Taalman lecture."

    Wait list is available but I will miss this.

    I'd love to attend this lecture, but I might not understand it, even though I meet the personality criterion of this group.
