In this talk, Associate Professor of Mathematics Marie Snipes will discuss how to measure the "size" of fractal sets like the Menger Sponge (modeled by the cube with lots of holes in the hallway of the third floor of Hayes Hall).  In particular, we will develop the notions of Hausdorff measure and Hausdorff dimension for sets in R^n. This talk will include lots of examples and pictures. Calculus students are particularly encouraged to attend.

Join us on Monday, September 26, from 3:10 to 4 p.m. in Hayes 109 for this exciting presentation. We hope to see you then!
