Math Encounters: “Shaping Surfaces” with Chaim Goodman-Strauss

National Museum of Mathematics (MoMath)

Wednesday, December 3, 4 p.m. and 7 p.m.

Nature melds living surfaces from the geometry of curvature.  Corals, leaves, lichens – even membranes and ears – all living surfaces are shaped through exquisite control over this intrinsic geometry, even as those surfaces flex, twist and grow.  Explore fundamental topological principles with mathematician Chaim Goodman-Strauss, and see the surprising beauty and simplicity of the underlying principles that control the geometry of surfaces.

Free admission; registration required.
