Richard Guy's Strong Law Of Small Numbers And How Not To Make Friends
Hanson Smith (UConn)

Wednesday, September 23, 2020
5:45pm – 6:35pm

Storrs Campus

In this talk we will work through a number of examples from Richard Guy's wonderful paper "The Strong Law of Small Numbers." The main theorem is "you can't tell by looking". Following Guy, we will prove this by intimidation. Audience participation, questioning, and guessing is highly encouraged. We'll conclude the talk with an exciting application to web comics.
