6:30 pm – 8:00 pm: Presentation & Activities
Featured Cafe Presenter: Adam Weyhaupt, Ph.D., Dean, College of Arts and Sciences, Fontbonne University
When asked to describe major advances in science and knowledge, people typically describe results from medicine, engineering, computing, and chemistry — mathematics wouldn’t often be mentioned. What is mathematics research? What are some of the questions mathematicians wrestle with? What is mathematics like in the age of social media and supercomputers? We’ll talk about these questions and explore some open (unsolved!) problems in theoretical mathematics. This Cafe’ won’t require any mathematics you learned in school, so bring your curiosity but leave your algebra at home.
