SUMMARY:Math Encounters: "Matchings and Couplings: Domino
tilings of a chessboard and other tales" with Dana
Randall - April 7 at 4:00 pm ET (New York)
DESCRIPTION:Math Encounters &mdash\; Online:\n \n "\;Match
ings and Couplings: Domino tilings of a chessboard
and other tales"\; with Dana Randall\n \n Wed
nesday\, April 7 at 4:00 pm ET (New York)\n \n Cov
ering a chessboard with dominos might sound like a
curious blend of old pastimes\, but in reality th
ese tilings reveal rich and beautiful mathematical
structures. \; Interesting patterns can be fo
und in the geometric arrangements of dominos\, as
well as in the numerical counts of tilings of ches
sboards and related regions. \; Alternatively\
, viewing each domino on the chessboard as pairing
a black square with one of its neighboring red sq
uares\, tilings can be interpreted as assigning 32
pairs. \; Viewing these "\;matchings"
\; in a variety of contexts\, Georgia \;Tech A
DVANCE Professor of Computing Dana Randall shares
a surprising array of applications\, from the phys
ics underlying collections of diatomic molecules t
o dating algorithms for forming couples in a commu
nity.\n \n Special introduction by Peter Winkler\,
William Morrill Professor of Mathematics and Comp
uter Sicence at Dartmouth College.\n \n This is a
live-streamed event. \; Occasional video recor
dings are made available for a fee at videos.momat
h.org.\n \n \n \n This page is for the 4:00 pm ET
(New York) session. \; Click here to register
