ystery of mathematics" (in person) - April 13 at 4

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 (in person)\n \n The Lonely
Runner Conjecture is an (in)famous open problem in
combinatorial number theory: if n runners with di
fferent (constant) speeds move around a circular t
rack of length 1\, then for each runner there will
be a time when they have distance at least 1/n to
the others. \; How did this problem come abou
t\, how is it related to the approximation of real
numbers by rationals\, and how can we visualize t
his problem using two- or three-dimensional shapes
? \; Join mathematician Matthias Beck as we ex
plore this fascinating mathematical mystery.\n \n
This event will take place in person at MoMath at
11 East 26th Street.\n \n This page is for the 4:0
