Mathday, 2014


Mathday will be held on Monday, March 24, 2014. The plenary speaker will be Max Lieblich, Professor of Mathematics, University of Washington. The title of his talk is "To infinity and beyond!" What is infinity? Is it a thing? Is it many things? Questions like these have been pondered by writers, poets, philosophers, theologians, kings, scientists, (of course!) mathematicians, and (apparently) animators for millennia. We will discuss some of the history of infinity and how mathematicians think about it, following a trail first discovered in 1874 by Georg Cantor. There will be talks, seminars and field trips from 9 am until noon; and there will be labs, talks and more activities from 1:20 pm until 2:00 pm. A detailed schedule will be posted soon. Registration forms, which will include the schdedule of fees, are now available.
