Math History

September 20, 2015

In our first math episode, Dr. Amites Sarkar speaks with us about mathematical concepts that took the human race millennia to understand.  On the other hand, the amazing things people in history did accomplish is mind blowing.  Lastly, we discuss the similarity between Erdos numbers and Bacon numbers.

Corrections:
Tycho Brahe's nose was Brass not Bronze (I was close).
Dr. Seth Rittenhouse is first a physicist and second a mathematician.
