Exploring Intriguing Mathematical Nuggets

Unit 2: "What do the Koch snowflake fractal
and Pixar movies have in common?"

featuring Ingrid Daubechies

Monday, May 6 and Friday, May 10
6:30 pm to 7:30 pm

(in person)


What do the Koch snowflake fractal and Pixar movies have in common?  They use subdivision methods to define curves or surfaces!  In this unit, let's explore this very different way of defining curves in the plane.

About the Exploring Intriguing Mathematical Nuggets series:  Led by MoMath's Distinguished Visiting Professor Ingrid Daubechies over the course of four standalone units, this minicourse will explore several mathematical concepts that intrigue and surprise many people, breaking down each concept to make it more intuitive.  The course will consist of four self-contained units; each unit will be covered over two sessions, held within the same week.  The last unit will take place after the installation of Mathemalchemy, a mixed-media art exhibition opening in Composite on Fifth, the gallery at MoMath, on May 22!
