146- Geometric Optimization

Thursday, April 14, 2011: 11:00 AM-12:00 PM
Sagamore Ballroom 4 (Convention Center)
Lead Speaker:
Sarah Sword

You can use classical high school geometry—properties of reflections, rotations, and invariants under transformations—to solve many optimization problems typically treated in calculus. The speaker will use interactive geometry environments to visualize such problems and show how they fit into the broader mathematical landscape.
