What Did Ada Do? Digging into the Mathematical Work of Ada Lovelace (Gizem Karaali, Pomona)

April 30 @ 12:15 pm - 1:10 pm

Augusta Ada Byron King Lovelace (1815-1852) is today celebrated as the first computer programmer in history. This might be confusing to some because in 1852 there were no machines that looked like what we call computers today. In this talk I attempt to explain what Ada really did, and delineate the mathematics involved. Bernoulli numbers will definitely come into play, but there may also be other fun distractions along the way, possibly including some juicy gossip about Ada’s life.
