"Moviemaking Magic and Mishaps"
Abstract: Making movies look right requires more math than you might think. We'll explore some math involving cameras, projectors, and special effects.
Biography: John Beam is an Associate Professor of mathematics at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh. He received his Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of Miami in 2002. His research interests include probability theory and mathematics education. One of John's favorite hobbies is watching movies and learning about how they are made.
