Running around in circles and why it isn't as useless as you first expect.
Talk by James Arthur (they/them)
Friday from 5:00 PM - 5:30 PM in Stage B
Join me for an expedition into the sometimes bewildering, but most certainly interesting world of Mathematics. We will see why running in circles is just counting, why there is only one true squiggle and what a donut really is. In this talk I will explore the broad and interesting idea of Topology and present them to a general audience through comedy and one of my other main passions, parkrun. I will use homotopy and related ideas to show how everyday objects and familiar activities are the same to mathematicians and explain why, think coffee cup and donut.
