How Do We Know What We Know: Math and Computation

Ron Garret

11 a.m., August 18, 2019

Note: This Forum was originally scheduled for July 14th, but has been rescheduled to this date (August 18th).

This is another in a series of talks on the history of science and how we came to our present understanding of how our world works. This installment focuses on math and computation.

He was previously a rocket scientist. He also made a feature-length documentary about homelessness (www.graceofgodmovie.com). His blog can be found at blog.rongarret.info.
