The Sound of Algebra
October 3, 2005
Bailey Hall 201
Pastries and drinks will be served in Bailey 204 prior to the talk
Can you really "hear" algebra? One place to try is in a bell tower. Change ringing uses permutation groups to give order to the ringing of bells. This talk will give a little bit of background on change ringing and use algebra to ease the task of composing for the bells by answering the question of whether or not understanding "falseness" for one method (aka, song) translates to understanding it for other methods.
