Refreshments will be served at 3:30.
The talk is appropriate for people of all ages and backgrounds.
Juggling Numbers, Algebra, and Topology
One goal of mathematics is to describe the patterns in the world, from weather to population growth to disease transmission. We will use mathematics to describe juggling patterns, count the different kinds of patterns, and create new patterns. We will make surprising connections to group theory, topology, combinatorics, and number theory. This talk is meant to be accessible to curious people of all ages and backgrounds.
