Title: Indiana Pols Forced to Eat Humble Pi, The Curious History of an Irrational Number Speaker: Prof. Edray Goins, Pomona College In 1897, Indiana physician Edwin J. Goodwin believed he had discovered a way to square the circle, and proposed a bill to Indiana Representative Taylor I. Record which would secure Indiana’s the claim to fame for his discovery. About the time the debate about the bill concluded, Purdue University professor Clarence A. Waldo serendipitously came across the claimed discovery,…

Prof. Sam Nelson

September 9 @ 4:15 pm - 5:15 pm

Title: Experimental Knot Music Abstract: In knot theory, there are algebraic structures we can use to distinguish different types of knots and links. In this talk we will ask an unexpected question: what do they sound like? We will see a number of techniques I have been developing for interpreting knot-theoretic structures as elements of musical composition. Prof. Nelson is Professor and Chair of the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Claremont McKenna College.

September 16 @ 4:15 pm - 5:15 pm

Title: Space vectors forming rational angles Abstract: We classify all possible configurations of vectors in three-dimensional space with the property that any two of the vectors form an angle whose measure is a rational multiple of π. As a corollary, we find all tetrahedra whose six dihedral angles are all rational multiples of π.While these questions (and their answers) are of an elementary nature, their resolution will take us on a tour through cyclotomic number fields, computational algebraic geometry, and…
