Title: Cutting Cake with Algebraic Topology
Abstract: A group of people want to divvy up a piece of cake "fairly". What does "fairly" mean? How do they this? What does this have to do with the Borsuk--Ulam theorem? I will try to say something about these questions, and a bit more, time permitting.
Speaker: Vladimir Retakh
