Infinitely Irrational: A Math Podcast

7. Erdös: Mammas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Mathematicians

November 15, 2019

For this trilogy, we meet a more modern mathematician – Paul Erdös.  We can wait to introduce to you one of our favorites: a teacher at heart who has collaborated with more mathematicians than anyone…ever! In this episode, we’ll attempt to answer the following questions.

  • If an evil spirit wants to destroy humanity, do you sic the computers on it or punch it in the face?
  • What’s the fastest way to get thrown off a plane?
  • What do either of these things have to do with math?
