Saturday April 30 will be a fantastic undergraduate math conference, held here at Williams. There will be tons of (230) excellent talks, many of which are accessible to a general audience with little math background, and others of which reveal exciting deep topics and research that's being done in the frontiers of mathematics today.
My talk, about the Continued Fraction Revolution, will be at 3:45 in the afternoon in room 207 of the Physics building.
Other talks you should go to include those given by fellow members of the Moocho Macho Moocow Military Marching Band:
And also the Keynote Talk by Ken Ribet, whose work was instrumental in the proof of Fermat's Last Theorem last decade. It should be fun, and will occur in Chapin Hall at 11.
Visit the Hudson River Conference XII page for a full schedule and more info (you can click on the link next to each session to see a list of talks then).
Last but not least, consider these additional social justice-y and political reasons for attending my talk: The masses of real numbers (the irrationals, which make up the huge majority of all numbers) are being oppressed by the decimal system which is upheld by an elite oligarchy of rational numbers whom the system benefits. The decimal system disempowers the irrationals by not revaling their true power, structure, and beauty. Come learn about a system which makes a first step in the right direction by giving voice to the some of the irrationals and showing their inner structure. Furthermore, we shall briefly engage the question of more general systems which extend that structure to even more irrational numbers. Perhaps we can look forward to a day when all numbers are considered equally beautiful and amazing!
Hope to see you there!
