DESCRIPTION:Mathematics Awareness Month Public Lecture Series\n\nMathematic
s Awareness Month is held each year in April. Its goal is to increase publi
c understanding of and appreciation for mathematics. To that end Cornell's
Department of Mathematics sponsors an annual public lecture. To learn more
about Mathematics Awareness Month and its history\, visit www.mathaware.org
.\n\nUPCOMING LECTURES\n\nThe next lecture in this series will take place o
n Thursday\, April 11\, 2019 at 4:30pm in 253 Malott Hall.\nRefreshments wi
ll be served at 4:00pm in 532 Malott Hall (the fifth floor lounge.)\n\nSpea
ker: David Swart\, Mathematical Artist\nTitle: The Delightful Geometries of
Soccer Balls\n\nAbstract: You are probably familiar with traditional socce
r balls\, with their black pentagons and white hexagons. What you may not
have noticed is the creative “arms race” that soccer balls have been throug
h in recent years with new graphics and seam patterns appearing all the tim
e. Modern soccer ball designs are in that wonderful intersection between m
athematics and art: they allow mathematicians to gain an appreciation for
design\, and they allow sports fans to learn something about geometry. Eve
n if you’re familiar with the latest soccer ball designs\, or with spherica
l geometry\, or both\, there will likely be something new and interesting t
o learn from this talk. (You might even learn how to finally draw a decent
soccer ball!)\n\nA poster for this talk is available following this link.\
