Michiel Hochstenbach (TU Eindhoven): Lessons from a computational genius

Date: 21. 4. 2020
Source: Numerical analysis seminar
Sreda, 22. 4. 2020, od 10h do 11h preko sistema Zoom

Seminar bo od 10:15 dalje na tej povezavi. Imejte pripravljen svinĨnik in papir, da boste lahko sodelovali, kalkulatorji ne veljajo!

In this talk we will review some nice methods of the Dutch "computational genius" Willem Bouman, 80 years old. In February 2020, he set yet another world record (at TU Eindhoven). This will be an interactive presentation, where you will learn how to quickly multiply numbers (just writing down the answer), and to determine what day of the week a certain date is. We will also discuss his recent record, and several other techniques. Please have pen and paper ready; calculators are not allowed!
