Brown Bag Lunch/Lecture - An introduction to Mathematical Games and Puzzles
Brown Bag - An introduction to Mathematical Games and Puzzles
Wednesday, May 7, 2014 from 1:00 – 2.30pm
We will examine and play a number of (non-gambling) games that are easy to learn and challenging to solve. In each game one of the players can force a win or each player can guarantee (at least?) a draw. The discussion is designed for those who enjoy games like chess, checkers, dots and boxes, or even tic tac toe. Professor Brown, a Fellow of the American Mathematical Society, is the winner of a national award for his research, and holds a named professorship for his teaching.
