SUMMARY:IPAM Presents: The Calculus of Comedy: Math in The Simpsons\, Futurama\, and The Big Bang Theory
DESCRIPTION:IPAM Presents: The Calculus of Comedy: Math in The Simpsons\, Futurama\, and The Big Bang Theory \nWhile there is no mathematical formula for writing television comedy\, for the writers of The Simpsons\, Futurama\, and The Big Bang Theory\, mathematical formulas (along with classic equations and cutting-edge theorems) can sometimes be an integral part of those shows. In a lively and nerdy discussion\, five of these writers (who have advanced degrees in math\, physics\, and computer science) will share their love of numbers and talent for producing laughter. Mathematician Sarah Greenwald\, who teaches and writes about math in popular culture\, will moderate the panel. \nThe event will begin with a lecture by bestselling author Simon Singh (The Simpsons and Their Mathematical Secrets)\, who will examine some of the mathematical nuggets hidden in The Simpsons (from Eulerâ€™s identity to Mersenne primes) and discuss how Futurama has also managed to include obscure number theory and complex ideas about geometry.\nTickets are $15 each and seating is limited\, so reserve your seat soon (ticket required for entry to the event).
