EAU CLAIRE - The seventh annual University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Mathematics Retreat will be held Wednesday, April 1, at the university.
All mathematics classes that day will be replaced by special faculty, student and guest speaker presentations.
Faculty and student presentations are slated for 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Hibbard Hall. The presentations will be at levels appropriate for undergraduate mathematics students.
This year's guest speaker will be Alan D. Taylor, a professor of mathematics at Union College in Schenectady, N.Y., who specializes in mathematical political science. He has taught there since completing his doctorate in mathematics in 1975. He wrote the book "Mathematics and Politics" in 1995 and has co-authored three books on game theory. In addition, he has published more than 30 research articles.
Taylor's first talk, titled "Fair Division: From Cake-Cutting to Taking Turns," will begin at 2 p.m. in room 101 of Hibbard Hall. He will then give a second presentation at 7:30 p.m. titled "Fair Division: From Divorce to International Dispute." His evening talk will be in room 102 of Hibbard Hall.
A reception for all participants and guests will begin at 3 p.m. following Taylor's afternoon presentation. The reception will be held in the Hibbard Hall Penthouse.
All events are open to the public. Area teachers, their students and parents are encouraged to attend.
