When: Tue., Feb. 18, 7:30-9 p.m. 2020
Dr. Richard Evan Schwartz, Chancellor’s Professor of Mathematics at Brown University, will deliver the 75th semi-annual Harry S. Kieval Lecture at HSU. The public is welcome to this free lecture, geared to a general audience. The title of the lecture is “Geometry and Experiment”. Dr. Schwartz will give a guided tour through some of the graphical user interfaces he has made. The first few programs, mostly demos, give neat and sometimes unexpected geometric pictures of some well-known topics in mathematics. The last few are more extensive programs which reveal hidden structure in simply stated but deceptively deep geometry problems.
