The Mathematics of Wordplay
Millions of word lovers and puzzle enthusiasts solve crosswords every day, in print and online. Certainly it helps to have a big vocabulary when solving the daily crossword, but did you know how much math underlies the process of constructing a crossword? Join master puzzle creator Nathan Curtis in exploring topics from information theory, geometry, and graph theory that explain how a crossword can come to be.
MoMath is delighted to have Nathan back at the Museum for The Mathematics of Wordplay as well as for MoMath's 8th annual puzzlehunt, Dimensions 2019: Leonardo’s Codex, which will be held on Saturday, December 14. Nathan previously constructed MoMath’s extremely popular Dimensions 2015: What the Tortoise Taught Us puzzlehunt for the 150th anniversary of the publication of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
