The Department of Mathematics invites you to join us for the Mathematics Seminar.
This week’s presentation will be:
The Continuum, Choice, and a Game of Darts by Dr. Trey Smith
In this talk, we will look at two big ideas in set theory: the Continuum Hypothesis and the Axiom of Choice. Then we will consider a seemingly innocent dart game that leads to the demise of both. The only real requirement for this talk is the ability to nod and agree. This will be an exploration of formalism versus intuition that you won’t want to miss!
