Mathematical puzzles can entertain us, challenge us, confound us, and embarrass us. But a great puzzle can do much more: it can open our eyes to something we had never seen before (but maybe should have). We'll look at some gems and see what can be learned from them.
Following the talk, there will be a Q&A with the speaker.
Join us at the 2021 virtual FAU Frontiers in Science lecture series, beginning Friday, January 15 through April 23. We have experts this season from a range of scientific disciplines who are speaking about: understanding the big bang, chance in the making of the planet and life, inequities in infancy, mathematical puzzles, the discovery of early human species, how economic collapse from Covid-19 is creating the future faster, and more! We hope these lectures move you to deeper learning, explain your world, ignite your discussions, and bring the richness of the sciences to you.
