Enter the whimsical world of bubbles and learn how deep mathematical truths are hidden within their shimmering surfaces with Williams College’s Atwell Professor of Mathematics, Emeritus Frank Morgan.

On November 27 at Southwestern University, renowned mathematics scholar Frank Morgan will deliver a public lecture and demonstration on soap bubbles, which have fascinated and puzzled mathematicians for centuries. Attendees can look forward to guessing contests, a game-show atmosphere with prizes, beguiling displays of bubble-blowing, and insights into the mathematical principles governing soap-bubble behavior.

The hourlong talk and demonstration, “Soap Bubbles and Mathematics,” is open to the general public. Light refreshments will be available.

The event is sponsored by the Department of Math and Computer Science.
