Title:Mathematical Puzzles that S-t-r-e-t-c-h Your Intuition
Seminar:MASS Colloquium
Speaker:Peter Winkler, Dartmouth College
Humans are not born with perfect mathematical intuition, to say the least, yet most decisions we make are based on "feel", not calculation. Today you will hear some mind-boggling puzzles (some with solutions, some without) that are designed to help you adjust your intuition when it's about to run off the rails.
