Title:  Three flavors of billiards

Abstract:   The mathematical study of billiards extends well beyond the popular table game. I'll tell you about three different types of billiards (inner billiards, outer billiards and tiling billiards), and I'll explain some of the research I've done in two of these areas. This talk is directed at undergraduates and graduate students in all areas of math.

Food: A pizza lunch will be provided.
