Math Encounters: Modeling the Melt

National Museum of Mathematics (MoMath)
Discover what math can tell us about the disappearing polar ice caps at Math Encounters: Modeling the Melt on Wednesday, March 5, 2014. Hosted by the National Museum of Mathematics (MoMath), presentations will be held at 4 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
The precipitous loss of Arctic sea ice has far outpaced expert predictions. Ken Golden, known as the Indiana Jones of mathematics, will explore the mathematical underpinnings of this mystery and take attendees (via video) on an Antarctic expedition. Ken will be introduced by Anousheh Ansari, co-founder & CEO of Prodea Systems and the first civilian woman in space.
Presented by the Simons Foundation and the National Museum of Mathematics, Math Encounters is a public presentation series that celebrates the spectacular world of mathematics.
