AND THE RUTGERS π CLUB
THE MATHEMATICS OF CHANCE:
A BRIEF HISTORY OF GAMBLING FROM MONTE CARLO TO WALL STREET
Here is Professor Rodríguez's description of his talk:
"Games of chance have been around for centuries. We'll discuss how these games gave birth to modern probability theory, and how these ideas are used today to protect against risks (as well as take risks!) on Wall Street. There are no prerequisites for the talk. Everybody is invited to come and attempt to win money from the speaker."
The talk will run from 8:20 to 9:00 p.m. You are encouraged to arrive at 8:00 for an opportunity to meet other students who are interested in mathematics.
WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 28
