Hey y'all, scheduled another SFAM meeting at Noisebridge, in Turing Room on
Wednesday, April 20. Here's what's up:


Time for another math club meeting! Rhombus!

This time we have Paul Pedersen, who you may know from the Silicon Valley
Math Meetup (http://www.meetup.com/Silicon-Valley-Math-Meetup/). I was
fortunate enough to have made his talk on Galois Theory in the Fall of last
year, and was inspired to get him to come give a talk here in SF. Paul
managed to exhibit the beauty and essence of Galois Theory very accessibly
 in the course of about an hour and a half.

This talk will be about Quadratic and Cubic Reciprocity, which Paul
described as "some of the most beautiful mathematics in the world." I'm
pretty stoked to see his treatment of it.

NB: With construction in the Noisebridge building now finished and with the
event taking place in Turing Room (which has four complete walls), we
should be spared the ambient noise problems from last time.

math. Topics and talks generally assume some collegiate mathematical
