“To Infinity and Beyond: How Mathematicians Tamed Infinity”

5425 Bannister Rd SE
Infinity has attracted the attention of philosophers and mathematicians, from ancient to modern times. In this talk, Dr. Braverman briefly explores Zeno’s paradoxes and then discusses Georg Cantor’s theory of infinite sets. Set theory is fundamental in mathematics and, at the same time, one of the most elegant mathematical theories. Dr. Braverman insists that expertise in mathematics is not required to appreciate this presentation.
