DESCRIPTION:Math Encounters &mdash\; Online:\n \n "\;Break
ing Up Is Hard To Do: The Art of Decomposition&quo
t\;\n with Jordan Ellenberg\n \n Wednesday\, Decem
ber 2 at 4:00 pm ET (New York)\n \n Among the most
fundamental tasks of mathematics (or science) is
to classify in order to understand what kinds of t
hings there are in the world. \; A particularl
y satisfying form of classification is when we can
show that every complicated thing is built out of
a much smaller set of simpler things. \; In c
hemistry we get this satisfaction from the periodi
c table\; in mathematics we find it just about eve
rywhere\, from numbers to polynomials to curved su
rfaces. \; Take a tour of some of these "\
;periodic tables"\; of mathematics with mathem
atician Jordan Ellenberg and join us as together w
e explore the surprising relationships among them.
\n \n Special introduction by Alex Kontorovich\, M
