M513: Ramsey Theory in Rainstorm Fall 2020 (Dec. 05 - 06, 2020)
How many people do you need to put in a room to make sure four of them are either all friends or all strangers? Why does anyone care about huge numbers like Graham's number of TREE(3) come from? Ramsey theory asks how big a random object has to be for it to necessarily contain some structure.


M514: Cellular Automata in Rainstorm Fall 2020 (Dec. 05 - 06, 2020)
A cellular automaton is a grid of cells that changes according to simple rules, but can have complicated behavior. The most famous one is Conway's Game of Life. We'll discuss 1- and 2- dimensional automata, look at cool patterns they can produce, and see just how powerful they can be.


M418: Ramsey Theory in Rainstorm Spring 2020 (May. 30 - 31, 2020)
How many people do you need to put in a room to make sure four of them are either all friends or all strangers? Why does anyone care about huge numbers like Graham's number of TREE(3) come from? Ramsey theory asks how big a random object has to be for it to necessarily contain some structure.
