Proof of Napoleon's Theorem by checking three cases

It will be seen in this talk that certain geometrical theorems may be proved rigorously by checking only three cases. The idea is what Doron Zeilberger calls an 'Ansatz' -- that once we know the general form of a solution we can find the exact solution by checking a few cases. He gives examples where formulae usually established by induction can in fact be proved by checking a small number of cases. We shall do the same for Napoleon's Theorem and also for geometric theorems which don't seem to have been known either to the ancients or to Napoleon Bonaparte.

High-school mathematics only will be assumed. Themes such as computer algebra and notions of proof will be touched on, as will the historical context of ideas such as calculus and complex numbers seen in first-year university mathematics courses.

Professor Bryan Manly

(New Zealand Department of Conservation)

Analyses of Marine Mammals, Birds and Fish

Bryan will be talking about his work with Western EcoSystems Technology Inc. in the USA where his work involves projects assessing endangered fish in rivers and fisheries bycatch of marine mammals and birds using change point methods. Sampling designs and analysis for the Alaska Marine Mammal Observer Program will be discussed as will various analyses for the San Luis and Delta-Mendota Water Association and the Metropolitan Water Association of Southern California. Research for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers involves predicting fish survival rates in dams in the Columbia River Basin using the virtual/paired release method.

Dr Virginia Wheway

(Data Systems and Strategy, Theiss)

What's happening in the data science market, and what's all the hype about?

In this talk, I will discuss what it means to be a data scientist in this day and age, and show some of the data science and statistical problems now being tackled in industry.
