Knotty Knits and Evening of Math and Crafts

Dr. Sabetta Matsumoto, Assistant Professor in the School of Physics at the Georgia Institute of Technology

Dr. Matsumoto will be discussing creative crafts and math research. What can physics learn from crochet? How does a simple stitch change the stretch of a scarf, and how are modern materials and manufacturing learning from their wooly ancestors? Join Dr. Matsumoto for a talk about curvature using pattern making, symmetries using quilt squares and flags, hyperbolic space using quilting at crochet, and knot theory and coding using knits. For your reading pleasure, check out this linked NYTimes article on her research!
