Infinity Bottles of Beer on the Wall - or What's so Funny about Mathematics,

In addition to being a mathematician, Dr. Lefton has worked as a standup and improv comedian. Of course, this means that he's funny, and he can prove it! This talk will be a standup comedy set consisting of original material based on Lefton's experiences as a graduate student, professional mathematician, and college professor. WARNING: This presentation will include certain portions of Lefton's material that are only suitable for mathematically mature audiences!

Wednesday, April 27, 3:30 p.m.
