Math Colloquium by David Freund: “Knot for Everyday Purposes”

David Freund is a preceptor in the Department of Mathematics at Harvard University.

Abstract: Knots are a part of our everyday lives, from twisted strands of DNA, to shoelaces, braided hair and the inevitable tangle of headphones. Mathematics offers an insight into the structure and complexity of everyday knots and provides tools to tell them apart. Starting with pieces of string, we will explore the study of knots and how it ties together various fields of mathematics. No background knowledge is assumed.

There will be refreshments served at 4:15 p.m. in Seeley G. Mudd Building Room 208.
