Números a través de Dibujos: Algunas ideas de la Geometría de los Números

Saturday April 17, 2021 from 5:00pm - 5:45pm ET

Everyone who has studied high-school mathematics has learned about numbers, equations, and a little bit of geometry. But what is the most important topic in mathematics? Is it all about numbers? Is it about equations? Is it about shapes and forms? Well, it is about all of them!

Modern research in mathematics, combines the study of numbers, with the study of shapes and equations. In this lecture, Dr. De Loera will introduce the audience to Minkowski’s Geometry of Numbers. He will present some problems connecting whole numbers and familiar geometric shapes such as lines, circles, polygons. It should be understandable to a very broad audience that likes mathematics.

This is a special pre-recorded, Spanish language version of Dr. De Loera's 2021 NMF Live Online Weekend presentation taking place in English at this time.
