SUMMARY:Mathematical Fusion\, a three-part series with Pau
l Zeitz — October 14\, October 21\, and October
28
DESCRIPTION:Mathematical Fusion\, a three-part series with Pau
l Zeitz\n \n Wednesdays\, October 14\, 21\, and 28
at 6:30 pm ET (New York)\n \n Join MoMath favorit
e Paul Zeitz in a three-part series exploring bran
ches of math that fuse two seemingly mismatched to
pics. \; Attend events individually or attend
all three at a discounted rate &mdash\; each sessi
on is independent from the others. \; To regis

button on this page.\n \n Part One: "\;Electr
ical Circuits and Random Walks"\;\n Wednesday\
, October 14 at 6:30 pm ET (New York)\n \n Usually
math is applied to physics\, not the other way ar
ound. \; But it turns out that the equations g
overning simple electrical circuits are identical
to those describing random walks\, a subtle and di
fficult mathematical concept. \; Use physical
intuition to almost magically resolve very complic
ated mathematical questions.\n \n To register for

art Two: "\;Number Theory and Statistics"\
;\n Wednesday\, October 21 at 6:30 pm ET (New York
)\n \n How &ldquo\;likely&rdquo\; are two randomly
chosen numbers to share any factors? \; How m
any factors does a number have\, on average? \
; And what do these questions even mean\, anyway?&
nbsp\; Join us to explore these questions and more
as we apply ideas of probability and statistics t
o number theory\, which is the study of the natura
l numbers. \; Strangely\, even the number &pi\
; will play a role. \;\n \n To register for th

t Three: "\;Geometry and Number Theory"\;\
n Wednesday\, October 28 at 6:30 pm ET (New York)\
n \n Hermann Minkowski realized that his student E
instein&rsquo\;s relativity theory implied the mar
riage of space and time. \; But a decade earli
er\, Minkowski presided over another unexpected un
ion\, that of geometry and number theory. \; I
nvestigate Minkowski&rsquo\;s little-known &ldquo\
;geometry of numbers&rdquo\; to see how a careful
contemplation of area\, volume\, and graph paper l
eads to surprising insight into questions that elu
ded mathematicians for years.\n \n To register for

\n \n These events are appropriate for adults and
for students ages 12 and up.\n \n These are \;
live-streamed events. \; Occasional video reco
rdings are made available for a fee at videos.moma
