Mathematics in Science Fiction - this weekend
I'll be one of the speakers at the Fields Institute's panel discussion
How does math influence science fiction? In my case, I'm functionally inumerate and yet have created hard-SF universes that others have written scientific papers about. How does that work? This Saturday myself, Suzanne Church and Tony Pi will be talking about the intersection point of math and imagination--and perhaps, about the idea that there's no real difference between the two.
See you there!
