Eitan Grinspun - Movie Magic (4:00 PM)

 Registration is closed for this event
Visit a world where mathematics and entertainment intersect: the world of modern computer-based animation. Join mathematician Eitan Grinspun as he takes us on a journey through the intertwined history of mathematics and animation, from early hand drawings to the latest sophisticated renderings of three-dimensional surfaces on two-dimensional screens, and beyond that to the perplexing questions that mathematicians research today to create the animations of tomorrow.

Math Encounters is a public presentation series celebrating the spectacular world of mathematics and presented by the Simons Foundation and the National Museum of Mathematics.
