The Number After 2, 4, 6, 3, 9, 12, 8, 10, 5, 15: Neil Sloane on the Online Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences

Wed, Mar 23, 2016 | 3:30 pm

Join Neil Sloane to discuss the systems and structures at play in his Online Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences. This free digital library, now in its twentieth year, contains a quarter-million number sequences, has been cited as “one of the most useful mathematical sites,” and has received attention in both scientific and popular culture publications. During his talk, Sloane will discuss the challenges and opportunities of this sprawling project, and will share his favorite sequences. Sloane is currently a visiting scientist at Rutgers University. He has published widely on number theory and has worked as a scientist and mathematician in both academia and the private sector for more than forty years.
