Title: The Futurama Theorem
The sci-fi comedy cartoon Futurama hosts a number of mathematicians among its creative staff. In particular, one episode contains an original combinatorial result, which plays an important role in the plot. I will discuss the problem, show the proof, and then we will watch the episode
Spring 2014/Fall 2013 seminar list
The Math Club meets most Thursdays of the semester at 12:20 pm in Vincent 570.
The Math Club is open to all undergraduate students in mathematics; students from other programs are also welcome.
The goal of the club is to provide a forum for students to meet and discuss issues of common interest, such as careers in mathematics, research, graduate school, academic concerns, internship opportunities, scholarships, special lectures and summer programs.
The Math Club is very grateful to Professor Willard and Mrs. Jane Miller for their generous donations to promote student activities.
