Prof. Robert Root will present "Exploring Social Justice with Mathematics". Free pizza and everyone welcome to attend.
Alexander Hamilton said “I think the first duty of society is justice.” In our society, the nature of a just society is fiercely debated. Can mathematics help us to understand what a just society is and how we might work toward greater justice in our own society? We will look at a variety of connections between mathematics and social justice, including mathematical results, some of them recent, bearing on this discourse.
