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:Mathematics Senior Thesis Presentations
DESCRIPTION:\n Things Fall Apart: The Spontaneous Blowup of Water\n Sam Stewart '15\n\n\n Major in Mathematics\n\n\n If you throw a rock into a calm pond\, you will see a splash\, some ripples\, and then the surface of the pond will slowly become smooth again. Regardless of how hard you throw the rock\, the pond will eventually become smooth (perhaps after a few hours). The wave equation is a mathematical model that describes such behavior. However\, minor changes to the equation produces models with intriguing behavior. Under these models\, the pond water can spontaneously \;explode\, even after a gentle toss. How forcefully can we throw the rock without the water exploding? What is the correct way to we measure "force"? Can we predict if the water will explode from the size of the splash? How can we simulate such explosions computationally? How can we understand such explosions mathematically? \; \; In this presentation\, I examine such a "pathological" version of the wave equation and present numerical answers to some of these questions. \;\n\n\n Mean Curvature Flow of Tori of Revolution\n\n\n Colin Gavin '15\n\n\n Major in Mathematics and Physics\n\n\n Mean curvature flow is the gradient flow of the volume functional on embedded surfaces. As a nonlinear system of parabolic equations\, its behavior is quite complicated\, but generally solutions become more spherical over time as their volume decreases. The evolution of tori under this flow is of interest because their non-trivial topology prevents them from becoming round. This leads to the formation of a variety of singularities. In this talk\, I will focus on tori of revolution\, which reduces the problem to a version of planar curve shortening flow. From this viewpoint\, the possible singularities can be classified and\, in some cases\, their asymptotic behavior can be determined. I will give a brief overview of my results\, and discuss some of the methods in differential geometry and partial differential equations that I used.\n\n\n An Introduction to Alexandrov Spaces\n\n\n Isaac Goldstein '16\n\n\n pre-thesis report for Honors in Mathematics\n\n\n Alexandrov Spaces are a special kind of metric space invented and defined by some of the most influential geometers of the twentieth century. This talk will focus on mathematically defining Alexandrov Spaces and Gromov-Hausdorff distance\, one of the main tools used in generating Alexandrov Spaces.\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
