MaPSS: Mathematical Postgraduate Seminar Series: Gennady Notowidigdo (UNSW) -- Rational trigonometry of a tetrahedron

Dear All, 

We are delighted to present the MaPSS Seminar topic of today; please see the
abstract below.  

**From this Semester the Seminar will always run on Monday, at 5:00pm in 535A** 

Following the talk, there will be pizza on offer.  

Speaker: Gennady Notowidigdo (UNSW) 

Title: Rational trigonometry of a tetrahedron 

Abstract: This talk outlines a trigonometry for a general tetrahedron in
three-dimensional space, using the framework of rational trigonometry (as developed by
NJ Wildberger). Concepts from one-dimensional and two-dimensional affine trigonometry
are built on to obtain some results pertaining to the trigonometric quantities of the
tetrahedron. Some examples are given.  

Supervisors, please encourage your students to attend.
