12 April

Dear Students of Mathematics,

There's Music and Mandelbrot, and there's Music and Math, and there's even Cards and Math. But, what happens if we mix it all together? To find out what may happen, please attend today's Math Club talk where the amazing Sarah Koch will discuss Shuffling cards with the Mandelbrot set.  As always, everyone is invited, the pizza and pop are free, and it all happens at 4PM in the Nesbitt Common Room.

Special Announcement, I. The Lab of Geometry at Michigan - LoG(M) - is holding an end-of-year poster session Monday, April 16 from 11:30am to 2:30pm in the Math Department Common Area. Please come check out what your fellow students of mathematics have discovered this year! 

Special Announcement, II.. Tom Stoppard's Arcadia is a light hearted comedy that weaves together chaos theory, iterated algorithms (see today's Math Club talk) and the Second Law of Thermodynamics. It is often described as one of the better science related works ever written. You will be able to see it next weekend (April 19-22) at the Arthur Miller Theater. Please see either this poster or this poster for more details.

This week there are just a few announcements to mull over while you get ready for exams; they may be found below.

Don't be like Calvin,
