This Saturday, November 8th, Simion Filip will present the way our understanding of the physical world shaped the geometric problems that we considered throughout history. Examples will be drawn mostly from elementary Euclidian geometry and the talk should be accessible to anyone who is familiar with angles and triangles.
Mr. Filip is a senior at Princeton University, studying mathematics with an interest in mathematical physics. After graduation, he plans to pursue a Ph. D. in mathematics. While in high-school, Simion Filip took part in both the International Mathematics and Informatics Olympiads, where he received silver and bronze medals respectively.
