Pastries and Beverages will be served.

In this talk I will discuss the Chebyshev polynomials. I will show how they can be calculated recursively and discuss some of the properties of these polynomials. I will also show how a closed formula for the Chebyshev polynomials was derived. Lastly, I will show how Chebyshev polynomials can be used to approximate complex functions by polynomials.
