Meetup details changed: Lecture: The Mathematics, Magic & Mystery of Martin Gardner

From: Andrew K.
Sent on: Tuesday, October 15, 2013 8:27 AM

I've updated this Meetup with a summary of the talk.

Summary: Martin Gardner [masked]), Prince of Recreational Mathematics, died at the end of an astonishing publishing career spanning 80 years. His "Mathematical Games" column in Scientific American ran from the 1950s to the 1980s, and introduced thousands of budding mathematicians to elegant problems and magical items which still inspire "Aha!" moments today.  Every October worldwide there are Celebration of Mind events inspired by his writings (see to attend or host one).  As we approach his centennial, we'll survey some of what "the best friend mathematics ever had" achieved and the legacy he leaves behind. Twitter users may enjoy following @WWMGT (What Would Martin Gardner Tweet).

For more details, see the full listing:
