Title: | Combinatorial Combat: The Mathematics of Games |

Speaker: | Mort Brown Professor Emeritus Department of Mathematics University of Michigan Ann Arbor, MI |

Abstract: | We will study the strategy of several games where mathematics can play a role. Some are "solvable" games, some are "unsolved", and in some it is known who wins but nobody knows how it is done. The rules of the games are all simple, but the games may not be. |
