FYI: TODAY: Department of Mathematics Colloquium talk, March 31, 2021, 4:00-5:00 pm
"Poetry and Mathematics"
Pedro Poitevin, Salem State University
Abstract: Since the times of Pythagoras, poetry has had some formal affinity for mathematics. Poets have sometimes drawn on mathematics for inspiration, but this is not the whole story of the affair between these two subjects. In this talk we will outline some of the highlights (some of them quite surprising) of this long-term distant relationship. We will conclude with an informal account of how some mathematical ideas can help give shape to our understanding of some aspects of poetry.
About the speaker: A mathematician by profession, Pedro Poitevin is a bilingual poet and translator originally from Guatemala.
After completing his undergraduate studies at Universidad del Valle de Guatemala and working on a master's degree, also in Mathematics, at Ohio University, Poitevin finished his PhD at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2006. His interests include continuous logic for metric structures, nonstandard analysis, Banach space geometry, and the interrelationship between mathematics and literature. Poetry is also a professional interest; he is a contributor to Letras Libres and Periódico de Poesía, the poetry journal of the National Autonomous University of México (UNAM); his poems in English have appeared in Rattle and River Styx, among others.
