Coincidences, Chaos, and All That Math Jazz

In his book for the eternally curious, Coincidences, Chaos, and All That Math Jazz, Edward Burger, PhD, fuses a math professor’s understanding of the hidden mathematical skeleton of the universe with the distorted sensibility of a stand-up comedian. Meet the author who makes light of weighty ideas.

Both math phobics and math wizards will enjoy this talk by a dynamic and entertaining speaker. If you hate mathematics, this presentation is for you!

Edward Burger is professor of mathematics at Williams College. He has written 30+ research articles and 12 books. Reader’s Digest selected Burger “America’s Best Math Teacher” in their 2006 Best of Everything list.
