Title: | The Sound of Algebra |

Speaker: | Michele Intermont Associate Professor Department of Mathematics and Computer Science Kalamazoo College |

Abstract: | Can you really hear algebra? One place to try is in a bell tower. Change ringing uses permutation groups to give order to the ringing of the bells. This talk will give a little background on change ringing and use algebra to ease the task of composing for the bells by answering the question of whether or not understanding falseness for one method (aka song) translates to understanding it for other methods. This talk grew out of an undergraduate senior thesis. |
