Dr. Katharine Shultis will deliver her talk, "Equideomposability of Polygons"
Abstract: There are many ways of comparing polygons. For instance, we could compare their areas or perimeters. We could also ask if they are similar or congruent. In this talk we will explore a notion of comparing polygons, called equidecomposability, that involves breaking them into pieces and comparing the pieces. We'll look at some examples and then sketch a proof showing that equidecomposability is equivalent to having the same area.
Contacts: Dr. Richard Cangelosi
