3:30-4:30pm, Miller Learning Center, Room 171
Title of talk: Through the looking glass: Symmetry, the fourth dimension, and beyond Description: Why are our mirror images reflected left-right but not up-down? What does the fourth dimension look like? How is it possible that a square box can be big enough to hold only one round marble of a given size, but the marble only takes up a…

Title of talk: Mathematics of Crime
Abstract: There is an extensive applied mathematics literature developed for problems in the biological and physical sciences. Our understanding of social science problems from a mathematical standpoint is less developed, but also presents some very interesting problems, especially for young researchers. This lecture uses…

Title of talk: The ranks of elliptic curves
The study of integral and rational points on elliptic curves, typically given as cubic equations in two variables, goes back to antiquity. I will discuss some of Fermat's work on the subject and will state the theorem of Mordell and Weil on the group of rational points. I will then…
