After bit break of hosting meetings I am excited to report our 2012-13 schedule. We have not done many events outside the realm of pure mathematics, but this year will have a fairly different flavour of events.
On September 22, 2012 we will be hosting a meeting on Industrial Mathematics at UOIT. Keep tuned for media related to this event to get a taste of problems being solved b applied mathematicians and engineers.
In October FUN will be involved with the inaugural Fields Medal Symposium being held in honour of the work of Fields Medallist Ngo Bau Chao. It will explore his work and its implications for the Langlands Program. Organizers of previous and future FUN events will be invited to a special event with distinguished guests of the symposium.
After a long summer, I am getting back into contact with our organizers at the University of Waterloo, Queen’s University, and the University of Toronto for more events to be planned.
Also, we have been in touch with some Rubik’s Cube professionals (also known as speed cubers) to host our first event which will not be purely academic. We are hoping to host a competition and also get a few engineers from Google that have proven by brute force that all 3×3 Rubik’s cubes can be solved in 20 moves or less.
