Curve Shortening and Bicycle Tracks; Life as a math major at EPIC

November 4, 2013

Speakers: Sigurd Angenent; Renee Schuppener

Abstract: Dr. Sigurd Angenent will answer three old questions in his talk: Can you tell from a pair of bicycle tracks which is the front track, and which is the rear?  If you know the track of the front tire, can you draw that of the rear tire?  What about the other way around?

Also on Monday, Renee Schuppener will be speaking about life as a math major at Epic Corporation, a leading medical software company that regularly hires math majors.
