Mathematics Colloquium: The Role of Counterexamples in Mathematics

2011-03-01

4:10 p.m. Neill Hall 5W

Sharif Ibrahim

In this talk, I will present some interesting counterexamples (mainly in calculus/real analysis). The relationship between theorems and counterexamples is explored and I argue for increased exposure to counterexamples in curriculum.
