The Secret of Staying in Sync: It's not Magic. It's Math.

Join Jonathan Hauenstein, associate professor of applied and computational mathematics and statistics, to learn the science of staying in sync. Synchronization is all around us, from the way our brains work to the way we navigate using GPS. Why do pendulum clocks on the same wall start swinging in unison? How do metronomes begin ticking together? It's not magic; it's math. Hauenstein, Ph.D., will share video examples and talk about multiple ways synchronization makes the world go 'round.
