GEMS Workshop: “Graphs, matrices, and recurrences” with Professor Lucas Bang, from Harvey Mudd College

April 13 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

TOPIC: Graphs, matrices, and recurrences

Abstract: In mathematics, we are often surprised to find that problems that look very different are actually the same problem in a different guise! In this seminar, we will build on the previous discussions about graph theory and describe how other areas of math are closely related to graphs. Specifically, we will learn how graph problems can be translated to and from matrix problems. We will also see how both graphs and matrices are related to recursive integer sequences (like the famous Fibonacci numbers).

WHAT IS GEMS:

The Gateway to Exploring Mathematics program (GEMS) is a series of workshops that helps excite the interests and curiosity of young students in mathematics and science

GEMS meets once a month on a Saturday morning from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM

GEMS is designed to reach 8th, 9th and 10th grade students who have an interest in mathematics and science

Participants interact with excellent and award winning faculty, staff, students and alumni from each of the seven Claremont Colleges
