DANM TUESDAYS :: Ralph Abraham

Wednesday, November 21, 2012 - 1:00am to 2:00am

DANM TUESDAYS 4-6 allow us to come together each week to listen, learn and share our work and play. This time is reserved for workshops, visiting speakers, student and faculty presentations, and community development. 


Prof. Emeritus Mathematics and DANM faculty Ralph Abraham

Tuesday, November 20

DARC 206 (5-6)



Network theory, also known as Graph Theory in the mathematics universe, has had a major renaissance lately due to new results in social network analysis. In this presentation Ralph Abraham will show off the aesthetic aspects of some of the new tools, and images from the recent literature. He hopes to meet current DANM students and develop a DANM workshop for winter quarter on this theme.


Ralph Abraham, world-reknowned UCSC Professor Emeritus of Mathematics, has been involved in DANM since its earliest years. He writes, "My research and teaching in chaos theory have made intensive use of computer graphics and sound. My interest in the DANM program is to interest students in math as artware, and make math tools available on the digital pallette."


** Please note the DANM Tuesdays presentation will begin in DARC 230 at 4:00 for the Creative Tactics and Art Responses: Ricardo Dominguez  lecture.  Raplh's lecture will begin in DARC 206 at 5:00 pm.
