MatheMagics Show at BYU

Dr Arthur Benjamin will be coming to BYU to perform this week.

Tickets are free; here’s the flier from the BYU Math Department for the event:

I’ll be going and so far I’ve convinced about a dozen others to go to. If you want to go I can pick up tickets for you. Just let me know.
