Eugenia Cheng: Infinite Cookies (and More Math Fun)

Town Hall (map) First Hill
Thurs, March 30 at 7:30 pm

Mathematician, pianist, and lecturer Eugenia Cheng is known for making math accessible, by any means necessary—including baking math-inspired desserts. She creates online math tutorials, and is the author of the book How to Bake Pi: An Edible Exploration of the Mathematics of Mathematics (also known as Cakes, Custard and Category Theory). She'll visit to speak about her latest book, Beyond Infinity: An Expedition to the Outer Limits of Mathematics, which will demonstrate complex topics through scenarios including "planning a dinner party for 7 billion people using a chessboard, making a chicken-sandwich sandwich, and creating infinite cookies from a finite ball of dough."
