Join MoMath favorite Paul Zeitz in a three-part series exploring branches of math that fuse two seemingly mismatched topics. Attend events individually or attend all three at a discounted rate — each session is independent from the others.

**Part One: "Electrical Circuits and Random Walks"
Wednesday, October 14 at 6:30 pm ET (New York)**

Usually math is applied to physics, not the other way around. But it turns out that the equations governing simple electrical circuits are identical to those describing random walks, a subtle and difficult mathematical concept. Use physical intuition to almost magically resolve very complicated mathematical questions.

**Part Two: "Number Theory and Statistics"
Wednesday, October 21 at 6:30 pm ET (New York)**

How “likely” are two randomly chosen numbers to share any factors? How many factors does a number have, on average? And what do these questions even mean, anyway? Join us to explore these questions and more as we apply ideas of probability and statistics to number theory, which is the study of the natural numbers. Strangely, even the number π will play a role.

**Part Three: "Geometry and Number Theory"
Wednesday, October 28 at 6:30 pm ET (New York)**

Hermann Minkowski realized that his student Einstein’s relativity theory implied the marriage of space and time. But a decade earlier, Minkowski presided over another unexpected union, that of geometry and number theory. Investigate Minkowski’s little-known “geometry of numbers” to see how a careful contemplation of area, volume, and graph paper leads to surprising insight into questions that eluded mathematicians for years.
