Math Seminar Series  (Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)

Student GAUSS Seminar

Chloe Lewis will be speaking.

The title is "Taking Topology to the Supreme Court - An
Introduction to the Mathematics of Gerrymandering."

Contact Keshav Sutrave (sutravek@msu.edu) for more information.

This year, elected officials in state governments across the country will use the results of the 2020 Census to choose their voters, rather than giving voters the chance to choose them, by drawing unfair Congressional district maps in a process known as gerrymandering. In this talk we'll look at some mathematical methods of quantifying the partisan gerrymander and discuss the role of the U.S. Supreme Court in informing such methods.
