"Bringing Math to the Masses," by Dr. Steve Strogatz

October 4, 2012 - 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm (already occurred)
Converse Hall, Cole Assembly Room

In the spring of 2010, Steven Strogatz, Cornell's Jacob Gould Schurman Professor of Applied Mathematics, wrote a 15-part series on the elements of math for "The New York Times." To his surprise-- and his editor's --each piece climbed the "most-emailed" list and elicited hundreds of appreciative comments. In this talk, Steve will describe his adventures in bringing math to the masses, including his work on his new book, "The Joy of x," as well as his sequel series for the "Times" this fall.
