“Logic!” said the Professor half to himself. “Why don’t they teach logic at these schools?” — C.S. Lewis, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
MoMath is delighted to partner with brilliant.org as we explore a series of beautiful concepts and problems, following the arc of a mathematical story that begins with simple logic and digital data compression, and that ends with the infamous Axiom of Choice.
Come ready to explore two advanced but accessible problems, and one completely mind-blowing, hallucination-inducing paradox.
The mathematics introduced in this session should be accessible to anyone who has seen some algebra and binary arithmetic before.
