What’s So Funny About Math?
Through March 31 (free with Museum admission)

What’s So Funny About Math? is a temporary exhibition in Composite, the gallery at MoMath, featuring a collection of cartoons related to math and curated by former New Yorker Cartoon Editor and present Cartoon and Humor Editor of Esquire, Bob Mankoff.  Each cartoon is paired with commentary from someone interesting who works in a math-related field.  Cartoonists featured in the show include Roz Chast, Drew Dernavich, Dana Fradon, James Stevenson, Robert Leighton, Jack Ziegler, Charlie Hankin, Sidney Harris, Nate Fakes, Dan Reynolds, Mike Seddon, Pat Byrnes, Mark Heath, Nick Kim, and of course, the inimitable Bob Mankoff himself.  Learn more at funny.momath.org.

What’s Outside the Universe? with CERN researcher James Beacham
Thursday, February 28, 6:30 pm

Our universe is bizarre.  Why is most of the cosmos composed of mysterious dark matter?  Why is the Higgs boson so strange?  Why do atoms exist?  Cutting-edge physics suggests that the biggest puzzles of science could be elegantly solved if our universe were one of a possibly infinite number of universes.  But is this a testable scientific idea, or eternally speculative?  Does mathematics transcend our physical world?  How do we talk about what’s outside our universe?  Join James Beacham of CERN’s Large Hadron Collider as he explores the edges of knowledge and how the future of science, technology, and innovation will be wilder than we can imagine.  Learn more and register at universe.momath.org.

Math & Magic with Manjul & Mark, a daylong workshop
Saturday, March 2, 10:00 am

Back by popular demand, this daylong workshop will explore some of the striking relations between mathematics and magic and will cover a number of highlights from the minicourse given last fall.  Some of the very best magic tricks invented over the years have involved serious mathematics, including concepts from number theory, group theory, recursion theory, topology, coding theory, and cryptography.  Conversely, and somewhat more surprisingly, a great deal of nontrivial and important mathematics has been discovered in these areas in recent years due to corresponding developments in magic.  In fact, these mathematical ideas have also had important applications in areas beyond magic.  Join Fields Medalist and Princeton University Professor Manjul Bhargava and world-renowned magician Mark Mitton in an engaging exploration of magic tricks and the beautiful mathematical ideas that drive them.  Learn more and register at marchmagic.momath.org.

Math Encounters: “Space, Time, and the Fourth Dimension” with Robbert Dijkgraaf, Director of the Institute for Advanced Study
Wednesday, March 6, 4:00 pm and 7:00 pm

Albert Einstein discovered that time should be seen as a fourth dimension that can be added to the three dimensions of space.  What exactly does this mean?  Can one imagine higher dimensions?  How does geometry work in four-dimensional spacetime?  And how does this help us understand fundamental questions in physics like the Big Bang, black holes, and the behavior of elementary particles according to the rules of quantum mechanics?  Learn more and register at mathencounters.org.

Equilibrium, an adult evening of mathematical games this month featuring SET
Thursday, March 7, 5:30 pm

Tween Primes, the MoMath book club for tweens and teens: Chasing Vermeer by Blue Balliett
Sunday, March 10, 5:30 pm

When a book of inexplicable occurrences brings Petra Andalee and Calder Pillay together, strange things start to happen: seemingly unrelated events connect, an eccentric old woman seeks their company, and an invaluable Vermeer painting disappears.  Before they know it, the two find themselves at the center of an international art scandal, where no one — neighbors, parents, teachers — is spared from suspicion.  As Petra and Calder are drawn clue by clue into a mysterious labyrinth, they must draw on their powers of intuition, their problem-solving skills, and their knowledge of Vermeer.  Can they decipher a crime that has left even the FBI baffled?  Learn more and register at tweenprimes.momath.org.

The Six Series: “Six Linguistic Sixes” with Princeton Professor Joshua Katz
Wednesday, April 17, 6:00 pm

In this interactive presentation suitable for all lovers of language, math, and puzzles, Joshua Katz will share six facts (at least) about English and other languages that have in one way or another to do with the number six.  For example, do you know what the connection is between six and the first word in any dictionary of English, the seemingly mundane but in fact fascinating indefinite article “a”?  Or why the letter “alpha” could be used for 1 in Ancient Greek, “beta” for 2, and “gamma” for 3, but the sixth letter, “zeta,” stood for 7?  Come learn and explore with one of Princeton’s “rockstar professors,” all in celebration of MoMath’s sixth birthday.  Katz is the Cotsen Professor in the Humanities, Professor of Classics, and a member (and former Director) of the Program in Linguistics at Princeton University, where he has taught since 1998 and has received numerous awards for his scholarship and teaching.  Learn more and register at six.momath.org.
