Math/Stats Colloquium: Mel Currie

A talk by Mel Currie (NSA - retired)

Tuesday, January 26th, 2021
4:00 – 5:00 pm / Virtually by Zoom

Speaker: Mel Currie (NSA - retired)

Title: A Little Magic with Combinatorics and Analysis

Abstract: We’ll take a look at how baking a nice bowl of combinatorics with a dash of analysis yields Brouwer’s Fixed Point Theorem in the two-dimensional case. We’ll leave with a sense of why it must hold in higher dimensions as well. Shades of algebraic topology!
