In 1899 Frank Morley noticed that the points of intersection of the adjacent angle trisectors form an equilateral triangle. Since then, proofs of various levels of complexity have been given, and in this colloquium Professor Conway will present a surprisingly simple proof discovered by himself. In addition, Professor Conway will introduce a new theorem of himself on equilateral triangles and the subtle mathematics behind it.

Ryan Chen talk on Friday (Apr 26)
We wanted to advertise another undergraduate math colloquium: Ryan Chen (’19) will be talking about arithmetic geometry this Friday 4/26 at 4:30 pm in Fine 214. It’s a great way to follow up from Ken Ono’s talk on Thursday–did you know that Ryan worked with Ken Ono last summer on modular forms? Title: Integer points, Diophantine geometry, and […]
(Board) Game Night!!
Hey Nullset!! You know what I haven’t seen in a very long time? A ton of nullset members playing board games. You know your life is in a pretty sad state when you don’t even have board games to make it better. So we’re going to fix that: This Friday, December 6 At 8 pm. NOT […]
