HOWARDIf a stick is broken at two random points, what is the probability it will form a triangle? This question, called the broken stick problem, first appeared about 150 years ago in an examination at Cambridge University. It attracted the interest of 19th century French probabilists, and more recently was popularized by Martin Gardner.  Learn about this classic problem and its applications in mathematics.

Come join us for this interactive talk from 2-3:30pm at UTD.  SLC 2.303
