Folded Quadratics

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

First of all, you're folding the quadratic algebraically, not geometrically. If that's not enough to whet your appetite, then you are clearly not the kid who stood in a corner at a school dance. But come anyway, you could probably use the rest after all that dancing. The talk is divided into three parts: Part 1: A concrete, very specific example, of what we're doing and what will get (some) kids saying: NO WAY! Part 2: We generalize the concrete example in order to see why it works. To which everyone says: No way. Part 3 (newly minted): We may finally have a proof of the Nirenberg Conjecture! You won't find this anywhere else!
