Taking the Joke too Far: Extremal Results in Joke Papers

Sam Spiro - Rutgers University

Location:  Hill 701 (Graduate Student Lounge)
Date & time: Wednesday, 08 February 2023 at 12:15PM - 1:15PM

Abstract: As I'm sure you've all worked out by now; I really like making dumb jokes. Unfortunately, I can end up spending so much time on jokes that I don't end up having time for math. My solution to this problem has been to write math papers which are based off of jokes. Somehow, I've managed to do this 5 times, and in this talk I will briefly discuss all of these joke papers. No prior knowledge of jokes or any sense of humor will be assumed.
