2013 Public Lecture
THE WORLD IS FLAT.
No, the world is not actually flat, but there are still people out there who would like to make it so. Join us for the Bridges 2013 Public Lecture to learn why and how. In this special celebration of art-math connections between Canada and The Netherlands, researchers Jack van Wijk (Eindhoven University of Technology) and David Swart (Christie, Kitchener-Waterloo) will discuss their shared interest in the impossible task of cutting up the earth in order to make it lie flat. Learn about this fascinating topic through images, animations, and live models.
