Chaos theory’s ins/outs explored at Science Night.
The University of Wisconsin-Parkside Science Night series resumes Wednesday, Feb. 8, with an exploration of the science and math behind the "chaos theory." This program titled "Ins and Outs of Chaos Theory" is presented by UW-Parkside Mathematics Professor Dr. Clark Alexander beginning at 7 p.m. in room 103 of Greenquist Hall. The campus is located at 900 Wood Rd., Kenosha.
"Come explore one of the most popular branches of science with me as I talk about what it means to be 'chaotic.' I will give examples from popular culture, from science, mathematics, and try to answer a few questions along the way," Dr. Alexander said.
Describing himself as Ramblin' Wreck who finished his studies in mathematics at Northwestern University in 2008, Dr. Alexander's areas of research are related to mathematical physics. He joined UW-Parkside for fall semester 2010 and is, in his words, "amongst the more chaotic mathematical faculty."
"Ins and Outs of Chaos Theory" with Dr. Clark Alexanderis free and open to the public. High school and middle school students and faculty with an interest in math and science are encouraged to attend. Admission is free and parking in the Student Center lot is free after 6:30 p.m. Refreshments will be served.For more information, please call (262) 595-2172.
