“The Perfect Nature of the Number Six” with Manjul Bhargava 
Wednesday, February 13, 6:00 pm
The number six has an illustrious history.  The ancient Greeks considered the number to be perfect because of its remarkable number-theoretic properties.  The number six also plays an extremely important role in nature; for example, bees have long considered six to be the perfect number of sides for each cell of their honeycombs – and for good reason!  In this lecture, we describe some of the remarkable properties of the number six, in both human and natural history, including some nontrivial magic tricks that make use of these characteristics of six – all in celebration of MoMath’s sixth birthday!
