First Undergraduate Colloquium of the Year

First Undergraduate Colloquium of the Year

On September 9th, the Department of Mathematics and Statistics had its first talk in the undergraduate colloquium series. Bridget Tenner of DePaul University spoke of the "non-messing up" property. This is the surprising property that if you have a matrix of numbers and sort the rows and then sort the columns, the rows will still be sorted. The phenomenon is still true if you sort the columns first. Dr. Tenner did a wonderful job of explaining the topic and keeping the talk interesting for all who attended. Check out the photos from her talk!

The next event in the colloquium will be on September 29th in IES 110 at 4:30. Visit here for more information.
