1/27/16 – A. Havens: A Pair of Conway’s Games, with a Topological Flavor

The UMass undergraduate Math Club will meet this Wednesday, 1/27, 5-6pm in LGRT 1634. This week, UMass grad student Andrew Havens will describe a pair of pencil and paper 2 player games, which will be a proxy for learning a little combinatorial game theory and topology. Participation is encouraged, as we will play the games to uncover their secrets. This meeting will be accessible to students of any level, and presumes no familiarity with either topology or game theory.

Pizza and soda will be provided!
