DESCRIPTION:Math Encounters:\n "\;The Lonely Runner: an un
solved mystery of mathematics"\;\n \n featurin
g Matthias Beck\n \n Wednesday\, April 13 at 4:00
pm ET (New York)\n \n (online)\n \n The Lonely Run
ner Conjecture is an (in)famous open problem in co
mbinatorial number theory: if n runners with diffe
rent (constant) speeds move around a circular trac
k of length 1\, then for each runner there will be
a time when they have distance at least 1/n to th
e others. \; How did this problem come about\,
how is it related to the approximation of real nu
mbers by rationals\, and how can we visualize this
problem using two- or three-dimensional shapes?&n
bsp\; Join mathematician Matthias Beck as we explo
re this fascinating mathematical mystery.\n \n Thi
s is a live-streamed broadcast of an in-person eve
nt. \; Occasional video recordings are made av
ailable for a fee at videos.momath.org.\n \n This
