Volumes, the MoMath book club
Thursday, November 11 at 6:30 pm ET (New York)
Volumes returns! Join Distinguished Visiting Professor Steve Strogatz for a discussion of the book Adventures of a Mathematician by S. M. Ulam.
The book is a thought-provoking account of the brilliant 30-year-old Polish Jewish mathematician, Stan Ulam, a bon vivant who fled Europe in the 1930s and, through his friendship with Hungarian genius Johnny von Neumann, found himself accepting a mysterious job in Los Alamos, New Mexico. Surrounded by young, eccentric, charismatic immigrant scientists, Stan begins top secret work for the Manhattan Project while also making impressive contributions to mathematics and computer science along the way.
