Monday, March 14, 2022 → Pi Day Talk
- SPEAKER: Dr. Andy Wilson, Kennesaw State University
- TITLE: "A talk approximately about pi"
- TIME: 3:00-4:00pm
- LOCATION: D-250 Mathematics building, Marietta campus and streaming online in Microsoft Teams
- ABSTRACT: How can we estimate the value of pi? Much effort has been spent on this problem throughout the history of mathematics. I will focus on one particular approximation that can be traced back to Madhava, a 14th century Indian astronomer, and this approximation's surprising connections to combinatorics and chemistry. Very little background will be assumed and I hope to make this talk approachable to anyone who wants to celebrate Pi Day!
