Come out to our last event on *Monday, April 4*! We'll have a prof talk by Dr. Craig Kaplan, as well as a joint CSC/WICS EOT; the prof talk starts at *5PM in MC Comfy*, and the EOT will be after. Food will be provided!
The talk will be on Surrounding a Polygon: Dr. Craig Kaplan will explore the problem of surrounding a polygon with copies of itself. This problem raises a number of fascinating mathematical questions, and we can use software as an experimental tool to probe the answers to those questions.
He'll also present known mathematical and computational results related to surrounds of polygons, and discuss what they say about larger open questions in tiling theory. Finally, he will also show how the task of surrounding individual polygons can make for fun and challenging puzzles, and say a bit about his experience creating an app based on those puzzles.
Also, the HCI (Human Computer Interaction) Lab is looking for people to participate in future HCI studies and experiments; please see the attached pdf for more information on how to sign up.
Thanks! Hope to see you all at the event :) Naomi
