“The Magic of Math”
With keynote speaker mathematician/magician Persi Diaconis
Get ready for the next MOVES Conference, which will take place in New York City from August 6 – 8, 2017! To add your name to the MOVES Conference mailing/announcement list, click here.
Dr. Diaconis is a professor of statistics and mathematics at Stanford University and a 1982 recipient of a MacArthur “genius” grant. A former professional magician, he now studies randomness and is well known for his work on card shuffling. He has shown that after seven riffle shuffles of a standard deck of 52 cards the deck is sufficiently random.
