History of Mathematics:
"Making Machines Fly and Other Stories from Antiquity"

Monday, November 22 at 6:30 pm ET (New York)

(online)

Embark on a Learning Journey across time and cultures.  Join author and tour guide Bernat Espigulé in an adventure across millenia from Socrates's geometry problem to Alexander Graham Bell's long-forgotten mathematical discovery.  Learn about one of the most famous problems of antiquity, doubling the cube.  And understand why the square-cube law was frequently invoked by 19th-century mathematicians to deter bold inventors and dreamers from the quest to achieve controlled, powered flights.

Please note that this is an online-only event; all registrants will be participating remotely.  Occasional video recordings are made available for a fee at videos.momath.org.
