Using math to investigate possibility of time travel: Mathematical model of a 'TARDIS' takes the 'fiction' out of science fiction

Time travel is mathematically possible!

Using math to investigate possibility of time travel: Mathematical model of a 'TARDIS' takes the 'fiction' out of science fiction After some serious number crunching, a researcher says that he has come up with a mathematical model for a viable time machine: a Traversable Acausal Retrograde Domain in Space-time (TARDIS). He describes it as a bubble of space-time geometry which carries its contents backward and forwards through…

Dr Dorff from BYU will be here giving a colloquim talk to the math dept on Feb 23. He has also graciously accepted an invitation to give a talk to students, and math club in particular. We just need to decide what talk we'd like to hear. Leave your suggestions below.

Please let me know by Tuesday next week which talk is preferred. Here they are:

******
Talk #1
Title: Soap bubbles and mathematics

Abstract: In high school geometry we learn that the shortest path between two points is a line. In this talk we explore this idea in several different settings. First, we apply this idea to finding the shortest path connecting four points. Then we move this idea up a dimension and look at a few equivalent ideas in terms of surfaces in 3-dimensional space. Surprisingly, these first two settings are connected through soap films that result when a wire frame is dipped into soap solution. We use a hands-on approach to look at the geometry of some specific soap films and "minimal surfaces".
******

Talk #2
Title: Movies and math – the past, present, and the future

Abstract: What’s your favorite recent movie? Frozen? The Avengers? Avatar? Transformers? What do these and all the highest earning Hollywood movies since 2000 have in common? Mathematics! You probably didn’t think about it while watching these movies, but math was used to help make them. In this presentation, we will discuss how math is being used to create better and more realistic movies. Along the way we will discuss some specific movies and the mathematics behind them. We will include examples from Disney’s 2013 movie Frozen (how to use math to create realistic looking snow) to Pixar’s 2004 movie The Incredibles (how to use math to make an animated character move faster). Come and join us and get a better appreciation of mathematics and movies.
*****

Talk #3
Title: What is the best job of 2014?

Abstract: A new 2014 ranking from CareerCast.com, a job search website, recently named mathematician the best job of 2014. “Mathematicians pull in a midlevel income of $101,360, according to CareerCast.com, and the field is expected to grow 23% in the next eight years,” states the Wall Street Journal blog post. Many students and professors think that teaching is the main (or only) career option for someone who studies mathematics. But there are hundreds of jobs for math students. However, just graduating with a math degree is not enough to guarantee getting one of these jobs. In this talk, we will talk about some of the exciting things mathematicians in business, industry, and government are doing in their careers and how these things are changing the world. And we will reveal the three things that recruiters say every math student should do to get a job.
