Recording of Volumes, the MoMath book club, with Steven Strogatz
This is a recording of a live-streamed event that took place on Thursday, April 14, 2022.
Appropriate for ages 18 and up.
Volumes continues! Join Distinguished Visiting Professor Steven Strogatz for an online discussion of The Calculus of Happiness by Oscar Fernandez. What's the best diet for overall health and weight management? How can we change our finances to retire earlier? How can we maximize our chances of finding our soul mate? In The Calculus of Happiness, Oscar Fernandez shows us that math yields powerful insights into health, wealth, and love. Using only high school math (precalculus with a dash of calculus), Fernandez guides us through several surprising results, including an easy rule of thumb for choosing foods that lower our risk for developing diabetes, simple "all-weather" investment portfolios with great returns, and math-backed strategies for achieving financial independence and searching for our soul mate.
