Mathematics, Measurement and Money
24 May, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Throughout its brief history, mathematics has been closely linked with measurement and money. In the ancient settlements the rules of arithmetic and geometry were used to solve problems about the allocation of food and resources. When life became more complex, the use of coined money led to computational problems that required good algorithms for their solution.
Nowadays we rely on mathematics for security, and the links between information and money have become blurred. Can mathematics keep us safe?
