|Title:||The discrete square peg problem|
|Speaker:||I. Pak, University of Minnesota|
|The square peg problem asks whether every Jordan curve in the plane has four points which form a square. The problem has been resolved (positively) for various classes of curves, but remains open in full
generality. I will survey various known results and outline two direct proofs for the case of piecewise linear curves.|
