Dr. Sabetta Matsumoto, Assistant Professor in the School of Physics at the Georgia Institute of Technology, will present: "Knotty knits and evening of math and crafts." 
Dr. Matsumoto will be discussing creative crafts and math research. What can physics learn from crochet? How does a simple stitch change the stretch of a scarf, and how are modern materials and manufacturing learning from their wooly ancestors? Join Dr. Matsumoto for a talk about curvature using pattern making, symmetries using quilt squares and flags, hyperbolic space using quilting at crochet, and knot theory and coding using knits.
