Facilitator: Matthias Beck studied mathematics and math education in Germany and the US, and is now a professor at San Francisco State University. His research is in discrete & computational geometry, and numerous of his publications involved collaborative research with undergraduate and graduate students. Matt was one of the co-directors of the San Francisco Math Circle for about 10 years, as well as the PI of an NSF GK-12 project at San Francisco State, which supported graduate students and K-12 teachers in their education, research and outreach activities.

Topic: Parking Functions form a fun and easy-to-explain concept in combinatorics with wide-ranging connections, e.g., to computer science. We will work out an approach to count parking functions, and this count in itself connects to other interesting combinatorial objects.

If you plan to attend, RSVP [here – Link soon!].
