Lecture

74th Harry S. Kieval Lecture

When: Thu., Oct. 3, 7:30-9 p.m. 2019

Dr. Zvezdelina Stankova, Teaching Professor, Department of Mathematics, UC Berkeley will give the 74th Harry S. Kieval Lecture, titled "Mission Possible or Impossible?” Dr. Stankova will discuss two fascinating games which take place on a checkerboard: one proposed for the Moscow Math Olympiads in the 1980s, and the other by the British mathematician John Conway. The games can be understood and played by anybody without any technical background. Yet, in solving these games one enters the imaginative and creative realms of mathematical invariants, infinitely many fractions, the golden ratio, and whether it is possible to prove something is impossible.
