Summaries

Summary Sentence: Henry Segerman is popularizing math by marrying it to 3D printing.

Full Summary: The School of Mathematics hosts a special talk by Henry Segerman, who is popularizing mathematics by marrying it to 3D printing. Segerman is a wonderful speaker; his talk is accessible to everyone.

Henry Segerman is a mathematician whose research is in the areas of 3-dimensional topology and hyperbolic geometry. He is also the author of the upcoming book Visualizing Mathematics with 3-D Printing. According to his website (www.segerman.org), "The twist with this book is that whenever it makes sense, figures in the book will be photos of 3D prints that readers can download and print for themselves, buy online, or rotate around on screen."
