Science Speakers {The Awesome Arbelos}

Special Science Speakers Presentation Candidate for the Mathematics Faculty Position

5:15 - 6:15 PM in Science Hall 106

The Awesome Arbelos Abstract: The arbelos is a geometric shape whose boundary is created by three semicircles. This shape was studied by the ancient Greeks using Euclidean methods. We will show several interesting properties associated to this shape, using a more modern approach in some cases, and will see how the speaker did undergraduate research on the arbelos without realizing it.
