Semester’s final ISO noontime lecture to be held Dec. 7, on mathematical proofs

The Institute for the Science of Origins Noontime Lecture Series continues Dec. 7 with “The Origin of Mathematical Truth: On the Nature of Mathematical Proofs.” Daniel Solow, professor of operations at Weatherhead School of Management, will lead the discussion Dec. 7 at noon in Ford Auditorium.

This talk will present an introduction to mathematical proofs, starting with a definition of what a proof is. A brief discussion is included on how to read condensed proofs that typically appear in textbooks and other mathematical literature.
