SUMMARY:Two Math Senior Thesis
DESCRIPTION:\n Maxwell's Equations in Curved Spacetime\n\n\n Ali Brauer '15\n\n\n Major in Math and Physics\n\n\n Maxwell's equations are the foundation of classical electrodynamics\, describing the propagation of the electromagnetic wave: light. Together\, they form arguably the most beautiful set of equations in all of physics. In the notation of special and general relativityâ€“that is to say\, in four-dimensional spacetimeâ€“Maxwell's equations can be expressed even more compactly and elegantly. In this presentation\, we will study Maxwell's equations in the context of general relativity\, where gravitation manifests itself in the curvature of spacetime. Specifically\, we will focus on the Schwarzschild metric\, which describes the spacetime outside a massive spherical object\, such as a black hole. Using tensor calculus and the notation of special and general relativity\, we will show that Maxwell's equations are wave equations. Next\, we will study the behavior of light near black holes by analyzing the scalar wave equation. Lastly\, we will determine how this behavior depends on initial conditions\, such as distance from the black hole\, and on the angular momentum of photons.\n\n\n A Mathematical Investigation of Optimal Control Theory\n\n\n Katie Keith '15\n\n\n Major in Mathematics\n\n\n Optimal control theory\, an extension of calculations of variations\, was developed by applied mathematicians during the Cold War when they were studying minimum flight time interception of rockets. This presentation will give a brief explanation of optimal control theory\, describe the mathematical proof of the Pontryagin Maximum Principle\, the primary solution technique of optimal control problems\, and extend the Pontryagin Maximum Principle to problems involving discounting and inequality constraints. \;\n

SUMMARY:What Are You Going To Do With THAT Major?!
DESCRIPTION:\n Join famed Anthropologist \;Genevieve Bell\, who has had a successful career in the tech field for the last 15 years\, as she reflects on how Intel\, and other technology companies\, have utilized social scientists to help think about the future of computing.\n\n\n She will speak about how centuries of essential themes drive how you will use your smart phone next week: Friends/Family\, meaning beyond self\, need to belong to a community of shared values/interests/skills\, need to belong to things bigger than ourselves\, and the need to keep secrets and tell lies. Join the conversation of finding the familiar in the unfamiliar\, and exploring what does not change in a world of constant change. \; \;\n\n\n \;\n

SUMMARY:Open Math Night and TeX-Off
DESCRIPTION:\n This is a fun event where both students and professors are invited to give their best math/CS-themed performance. In the past\, these performances have included song parodies\, raps\, and poems.\n\n\n We are also adding a TeX-off as part of Open Math Night. \;The idea is that there is some document with equations\, tables\, figures\, etc. that needs to be recreated in a fixed amount of time. Winners will be judged on both speed and elegance of code. There will be prizes. Think of it as the March Madness of LaTeX!\n\n\n If you would like to perform at Open Math Night and/or participate in the TeX-off\, please sign up here: \;http://goo.gl/forms/IUpAj5MfnS\n\n\n Fun snacks will be served.\n
