DESCRIPTION:Applied Math Seminar\nDr. Mike Siddoway (Mathematics\, Colorado
College / MSU)\nTitle: The Call of the Lune\nAbstract: 5th Century BC mat
hematician Hippocrates of Chios began the first systematic study of the ar
ea of figures with curved edges. With the intention of finding a way to 's
quare the circle' he looked for ways to construct and square lunes - objec
ts formed with the arcs of two circles. In this talk\, we'll look at the t
hree lunes Hippocrates could construct and square\, the two new such lunes
found by Euler 2200 years later\, and the eventual work of 20th and 21st
century mathematicians (via Galois Theory\, the Gelfond-Schneider theorem\
, Baker's theorem and other mathematical masterpieces) who demonstrated th
at these five were the only lunes that could be constructed with a ruler a
nd compass and squared using the same tools.
