The Joint Meetings are so full of exciting talks that it’s hard to figure out which ones to go to. To help out, we got a sneak preview of two upcoming talks that look fantastic.

Tomorrow morning (Friday, 9:00 a.m.) Francis Su will talk about “Mathematics for Human Flourishing” in the Marriott Atrium Ballroom

 

And on Saturday morning at 10:00 a.m. James Tanton will talk about “Weird Ways to Multiply” in the Hyatt Regency Ballroom VII

 

There’s two morning math pick-me-ups for you enjoy!
