Math club presents 'Probability does not exist!'

March Mathness continues!

The 124th monthly Math Club presentation will be on Friday, March 15 at the Truax campus. It will be held in room 209 at 3:30 p.m.

Speaker: Professor John Beam, UW-Oshkosh (His second presentation to our club)

Less than 100 years ago, probability was not widely regarded as a legitimate branch of mathematics, because no one had given the concept a solid definition. Bruno de Finetti was one of the first mathematicians to provide such a definition; but at the same time, he proclaimed, Probability does not exist. We will try to decide whether he was right... or whether he was right.

John Beam is an Associate Professor of mathematics at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh. He received his Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of Miami in 2002. His research interests include probability theory and mathematics education. One of John's favorite hobbies is watching movies and learning about how they are made.
