Math Talks with Faculty
Three members of our distinguished faculty will present talks of general interest to the informed public. All lectures are located in 60 Evans Hall. The talks are always popular with Cal Day attendees!
The Mathematics of Elasticity
Professor Chris Rycroft
10:00-11:00AM /60 Evans
Abstract: This talk will describe the mathematical principles of elasticity that can be used to model and simulate solid materials, which can be applied to many areas of science and engineering. Examples in the development of advanced alloys and the investigation of biological cell interactions will be discussed.
Numerical Computations in Science & Engineering
Professor Per-Olof Persson
11:30-12:30 PM/60 Evans
Abstract: Find out how mathematics and computers can be used to predict physical phenomena, and why this is important for analysis, design, and optimization in the applied sciences.
A Few Sure Ways to Lose Your Money
Professor Alberto Grunbaum
1:00-2:00PM/60 Evans Hall
Abstract: Mathematics Professor Alberto Grunbaum will discuss a number of games, some of them similar to ones you encounter in a casino. In many of these cases you discover-usually too late- that the house will always beat you in the long run even if the rules of the game appear to be perfectly fair.
What Can I do With a Math Major?
2:30-4:00PM/60 Evans Hall
