Melinda Lanius (UIUC Math) Hyperbolic taxi cabs and conic kitty cats: a mathematical activity and coloring book Abstract: In this extremely interactive talk, we will develop intuition for various metrics that I have encountered in my own research. We’ll work our way through understanding more familiar spaces such as the real plane as well as hyperbolic plane and disk, to less familiar objects: such as a surface with a Euclidean, cylindrical, or hyperbolicfunnel end. Some markers and colored pencils will be provided, but please feel free to bring your own fun office supplies.
