As part of the Math Club's History of Math Sequence, Professor Gabe Sosa of the Math Department will be presenting on three women mathematicians and their contributions to mathematics.

Title: Three very different stories

Short Abstract: In this forty-minute talk we will visit three different time periods, and in each follow the life story of a woman who made an everlasting contribution to the world of mathematics.

Long Abstract: During the winter break I binged the Netflix original German series “D A R K.” I greatly enjoyed it, and it made me think of how the format of following different characters through different times could be employed to give a talk on the math club’s series on the history of mathematics. So I came up with a (hopefully) reasonable talk (roughly as long as an episode of the tv series) following the lives of three women, in three very different time periods, who made everlasting contributions to mathematics.
