Hi everyone, I have fantastic news. In addition to today’s colloquium, we will have a 2nd colloquium this week, on Friday March 8th! Because next week is midterms week, this will be our last colloquium before Spring Break, so come enjoy a double dose of new math knowledge this week, while supplies last.

**Professor Tadashi Tokieda**

**Mathematics as applied physics**

**Friday, March 8 at 4:30**

**Fine Room 214**

**Your choice of pizza and possibly a bonus surprise…**

**Traditionally mathematics is expected to turn up unexpected applications in physics. We will explore the reverse direction, a variety of examples where physics can be applied to discover, then to establish, results in mathematics.**
