On Tuesday, March 20, we will have a special math circle lecture. The speaker is Dr. Maxim Arnold from UT Dallas and he will talk on continuous fractions. Here is the abstract of his talk:

“This will start with the definition, and some nice properties such as best approximation. Then short discussion of Gauss transformation and corresponding matrix transform involving Fibonacci sequence example. Then we could pass to the Kuzmin’s theorem and some new variation of it, which came from the Bianchi type cosmological models. Finally, if time permits, I might conclude with the discussion on the periodic continuous fractions.”

In Spring 2018, our math circle will meet on Tuesdays at 7 pm in PKH 311. The tentative schedule of the meetings is as follows: 2/6, 2/13, 2/27, 3/20, 4/3, 4/17, 5/1.

As usual, our math circle is intended for high-school and advanced middle-school students. Teachers and college students are welcome to the meetings as well. The webpage of our math circle is http://midcitiesmathcircle.org.

If you plan to come to our math circle for the first time and do not know where to park, a good option is to park at the Garage right next to PKH. Please, keep the parking receipt, as you may be reimbursed later. Maps of the campus can be downloaded at http://www.uta.edu/maps/pdf
