Math Club Meetings

(Last Wednesday of the month - Herak 237)

March 29, 2016 Herak 237

Dr. Nathanial Burch will present "Interactive Visualization for Mathematical/Statistical Exploration"

Abstract: Visualizing complicated mathematical concepts or large datasets has been one of my teaching and research passions since I first started studying mathematics/statistics. In mathematics, such visualizations can help us study complicated functions, visualize theorems, and explore difficult concepts – specific to this talk, we’ll discuss examples related to fractals and chaos. In statistics, such visualizations allow us to perform exploratory data analysis and share/present research results in an engaging way – specific to this talk, we’ll think about how to visualize a few different datasets and explore some common statistical fallacies.

We’ll use the free software package R to create graphics via the ggplot2 package and demonstrate how such graphics can (easily) be made to be interactive via the plotly package.

Finally, time/interest permitting, we’ll discuss some of the unique and exciting features of R, e.g., it’s free, it’s powerful, it encourages reproducibility, it streamlines our workflow, and it’s free!

There will be pizza!
