Full Description: The Tuesday Faculty Lunch Series welcomes May Mei, assistant professor, Mathematics and Computer Sciences, presenting a lecture titled "‘Don’t They Teach Recreational Mathematics Anymore?’ "
“Don’t They Teach Recreational Mathematics Anymore?” the Tenth Doctor laments after having to explain that “Any number that reduces to one when you take the sum of the squares of its digits and continue iterating until it yields one is a happy number. Any number that doesn’t isn’t.” Fear not, Doctor! In this Tuesday Lunch, we will explore some properties of happy numbers, as well as two generalizations of happy numbers.
