This talk will be split into two parts: LaTeX and Group Theory. In the first half of the math circle, Jacob will provide a brief introduction to LaTeX. LaTeX is a very useful program for writing up academic proofs and papers, and you can use it to make your work easier in all sorts of classes and projects. In the second half, we’ll explore the basics of “group theory,” a form of abstract algebra with some surprising applications.
Jacob Cordeiro is the author of four books, one an international best seller, Minecraft for Dummies. Currently, he is a student at Harvey Mudd College studying mathematics and computer science.
