The Mathematics of Magic
Dr David Cushing
7:30pm, Wednesday 22nd April
SciBar is a series of FREE public talks. All are welcome.
What’s the point of studying mathematics for over 10 years? To do card tricks of course!
In this free and fascinating public talk, Dr David Cushing will perform card tricks and then explain the deep mathematical principles behind them, ranging from probability to coding theory (just don’t tell the magic circle about the explanation bit!).
This event will be livestreamed on Zoom. If you’d like to take part in some of the excellent card tricks, please try to have a pack of playing cards or a pen and some sheets of paper to hand.
