"Reinventing the Wheel... Or Can We?"

Time: 1:40 PM

Location: Hill Grad Student Lounge

Abstract: Let's say I wanted to be the coolest nerd on campus, so I decide to design a bike with wheels that are not circles. Of course, I would look less cool if my ride wasn't smooth, so let's make "smooth ride" a condition on my design, too. Is this possible? If it is, what would my wheels look like and how many possibilities are there? We will discuss these questions through very concrete computations and lots of pictures. If there is time at the end, we will briefly discuss what this problem looks like in higher dimensions.
