What are Conformal Mappings? | Nathan Dalaklis
 
06:45
Conformal Mappings are a gem of Complex analysis that play a big role in both the theory behind the analysis of functions of a complex variable as well as studying fluid dynamics and electrostatics in physics, along with general relativity. In this video, a brief introduction to these maps is given in preparation for some even cooler geometric mappings we will talk about next time. ________________________________________________ Find the CHALKboard on Facebook: http://bit.ly/CHALKboard Interested in the person behind the camera?

Sierpinski's Triangle and Hausdorff Dimension | Nathan Dalaklis
 
06:50
Dimension is a very intuitive idea in the real world, but what is it actually, in order to get a handle on it we look at Hausdorff dimension and the famous Sierpinski's triangle (or inception triforce :D ) along with scaling properties of sets to find something that lies in between our discrete notion of dimension. P.S. Super glad I was still able to get a video up today. I know it is late, but I'm giving myself a pass on that since I previously said that I may not do one at all.

Choice Functions & The Axiom of Choice | Nathan Dalaklis
 
03:26
The Axiom of Choice is often stated in an equivalent form; the Cartesian product of a collection of non-empty sets is non-empty, however, what is the original statement, and what does it have to do with functions? Also, what is a choice function? In this discussion of the axiom of choice, we'll also run into the statements of some paradoxes too! CORRECTIONS: 0:42: The B is not the Codomain, only the things hit by the function f are in the Codomain and this was not clear from how I was talking about the terminal set.

Zorn's Lemma, The Well-Ordering Theorem, and Undefinability | Nathan Dalaklis
 
07:17
Zorn's Lemma and The Well-ordering Theorem are seemingly straightforward statements, but they give incredibly mind-bending results. Orderings, Hasse Diagrams, and the Ordinals will come up in this video as tools to get a better view of where the proof of Zorn's lemma comes from. ***Corrections: Near the end of the video, an open interval is mentioned, but a half open half closed interval is drawn.

What is CHALK? | Nathan Dalaklis
 
02:52
What is CHALK? What is chalk? Wait, I can't hear capslock. Anyhow, I'll explain both, or at least what chalkboard chalk is; Gypsum and it's some pretty interesting stuff. From uses in education, construction, and many other areas, gypsum is something we often take for granted and so it's good to think about the places where it is used. If you catch it in the card there's a poll! I would be super interested in knowing what topics you would like to see in the future.

Dynamical Systems & Symbolic Dynamics: Memory and Substitutions | Nathan Dalaklis
 
04:46
What type of math goes into memory and data storage? Well, as it turns out, Symbolic Dynamics, a subfield of Dynamical Systems theory is one such area of mathematics. In this video, we introduce the types of objects studied in symbolic dynamics, along with substitution maps and some recent research regarding shift spaces generated by substitution maps. I also show some of the research I have done in that I just presented at the JMM (Joint Mathematics Meetings) in San Deigo this past week. ________________________________________________ Topological Entropy for Symbolic Dynamics in more generality and rigor: http://www.scholarpedia.org/article/Symbolic_dynamics#Invariants_of_conjugacy_and_variants_of_the_conjugacy_problem Rust and Spindeler Paper: https://www.math.uni-bielefeld.de/~drust/papers/sss.pdf ________________________________________________ standupmaths: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSju5G2aFaWMqn-_0YBtq5A Numberphile: https://www.youtube.com/user/numberphile ________________________________________________ Find the CHALKboard on Facebook: http://bit.ly/CHALKboard Interested in the person behind the camera?

Schwarz-Christoffel Mappings and The Koch Snowflake | Nathan Dalaklis
 
05:24
Last time we talked about Conformal Mappings, but we didn't really give any specific examples. This episode is dedicated to producing a few of them that fall into the category of Schwarz-Christoffel Mappings. Being a bit handwavy, we'll look at the general form of a Schwarz-Christoffel mapping from the upper-half plane, and other mappings onto polygons. The coolest of which involve the Koch Snowflake, a fractal, which extends the idea of these mappings to "divergent polygons" ones with infinitely many sides and vertices. This video was inspired by the paper by Gonzol Riera, Hernán Carrasco, and Rubén Preiss (2008) linked here: http://dx.doi.org/10.1155/2008/350326 Last Video: http://bit.ly/2nr4vWb ________________________________________________ Find the CHALKboard on Facebook: http://bit.ly/CHALKboard Interested in the person behind the camera?

Basic Differences between English and Hungarian

There are a lot of things that are pretty intimidating about Hungarian (or Magyar) especially if it is your first encounter with an agglutinative, non-Indo-European language. In this short video, I go over some of the fundamental differences between the two languages.

The Borsuk-Ulam Theorem | Nathan Dalaklis
 
06:58
Mappings and functions that work on topological spaces other than the real line can be counterintuitive, and in cases like with the sphere, we have things like the Borsuk-Ulam Theorem which can assert the truth of things that would appear, without proof, to be outright lies. In this video, we go through some ideas, like homotopy, antipode preserving mappings, and covering maps/ covering spaces which are at the base of the Borsuk-Ulam theorem and use them to give a sketch of a proof of the theorem. CORRECTIONS!!! The denominator of the function g given near the end should be in absolute value.

Hedgehog spaces and, more generally, metrics/distance functions illustrate what I meant last week when I said a definition of a circle based on distance is ambiguous.

The Difference between Math and Stats | Nathan Dalaklis
 
04:22
How are Math and Stats different? The relationship between the axiomatic logic of mathematics and the experimental nature of statistics and statistical methods makes the distinction clear, but stats is often lumped in with mathematics. So when should math be used and when is math not enough and stats would help out more? In this video, I go through some of these differences in order to explain the nature of statistics, a subject that has always thrown me off guard in my mathematical pursuits. _____________________ Last video: https://youtu.be/CynQ1_UJ65E The CHALKboard: http://www.youtube.com/c/CHALKboard Find the CHALKboard on Facebook: http://bit.ly/CHALKboard _____________________ #CHALK #Statistics #Math

Cardinality and Constructing Larger Infinites | Nathan Dalaklis

Cardinality is one of the mathematical designations of a set's 'size'. In this introduction to the idea, I'll answer the questions of how cardinality is equated between two sets, how the natural numbers relate in cardinality to other sets, as well as go over the power set construction and how it is used to construct larger infinites too! _____________________ Last video: http://bit.ly/DSbhc8 The CHALKboard: http://www.youtube.com/c/CHALKboard Find the CHALKboard on Facebook: http://bit.ly/CHALKboard _____________________ Interested in the person behind the camera?

How can you cut a square into equal triangles? | Nathan Dalaklis
 
10:01
You've read the title, it seems like a simple question, but an answer requires the p-adic norm, Sperner's lemma, and some more mathematical machinery. In this video, we give a proof of Sperner's lemma for the 2-dimensional case and introduce the p-adic norm in order to provide a proof for Monsky's Theorem a gem that connects the worlds of number theory, combinatorics, graph theory and geometry all to give a counter-intuitive answer to this geometric problem. ________ Notes for this video: COMING SOON.... ________ Last video: http://bit.ly/2Ma0HmR The CHALKboard: http://www.youtube.com/c/CHALKboard Find the CHALKboard on Facebook: http://bit.ly/CHALKboard _____________________ Interested in the person behind the camera?

In this video, we look at games like Tic-Tac-Toe and Chess to see how playing on different boards in 3 (and even 4) dimensions can change the game, and bring up some examples of video games that utilize these different "boards".

Cardinality and Cantor-Schroeder-Bernstein | Nathan Dalaklis
 
10:23
The Cantor-Schroeder-Bernstein Theorem (or CSB), is a tool used to determine if two sets have the same cardinality. It is particularly useful when equating the cardinality of sets of infinitely many elements. Here, we go over a proof of the theorem and try to illustrate the construction at the heart of the proof as well. This video will probably be easier to parse if you've seen at least the first half of the previous video listed here: https://youtu.be/jh3Bar62swc Also, I wanted to thank STUDY TIME for the topic suggestion that resulted in this video and the one from last time.

.999...=1 and Fractal Geometry | Nathan Dalaklis

A bit of Algebra is the quickest way to see that .9 repeating equals 1, but there is another approach from the lens of fractal geometry using iterated functions systems (IFSs). These mathematical devices are used to created different fractals, but they can also be used to fundamentally describe what is meant by a decimal expansion, and they provide an avenue for other types of expansions of numbers on the unit interval. In this video we give a brief introduction to iterated function systems and explain how they relate to decimal expansions and the equality of 1 and .9 repeating. _____________________ Last video: https://youtu.be/_e7shdQWowQ The CHALKboard: http://www.youtube.com/c/CHALKboard Find the CHALKboard on Facebook: http://bit.ly/CHALKboard _____________________ Interested in the person behind the camera?

I've always had a hard time motivating Number Theory, and so, I wanted to illustrate this ability to develop interesting ideas, problems, and questions by starting with the natural numbers and branching out down different paths using number theory to see what I got. After spending some time on it, I made these choose-your-own-adventure style videos. If I were you I would take the multiplicative path, but the additive path, although it is not as fleshed out as some good starter information too for investigating beyond this branch of videos. _____________________ Last video: https://youtu.be/udLr7KM8oH0 The CHALKboard: http://www.youtube.com/c/CHALKboard Find the CHALKboard on Facebook: http://bit.ly/CHALKboard _____________________ #CHALK #Mathematics #ChooseYourOwnAdventure ============================= Background Music: Music by Chillhop: http://youtube.com/chillhopdotcom Globuldub - Foreign Exchange: https://soundcloud.com/globuldub Chillhop's 24/7 Live Stream: http://live.chillhop.com =============================

Abstract Algebra and Group Theory | Nathan Dalaklis
 
04:29
What kinds of things do algebraists study? Well, a group is an example of such a mathematical object that is both important to algebraists and one that pops up in all different fields of mathematics. Here I give an intro to the basics of Group Theory. Namely, the group axioms, Abelian groups, dihedral groups amongst other things. ___________________________________________________________ Find the CHALKboard on Facebook: http://bit.ly/CHALKboard Interested in the person behind the camera?

The Intermediate Value Theorem, Continuity, and The Axiom of Completeness | Nathan Dalaklis
 
11:50
The Intermediate Value Theorem is something that I said I covered, but apparently I hadn't yet. So here I tackle a proof of the IVT with the help of Continuity and the Axiom of Completeness so that when it does come up again, I can reference it and actually have something to point at :D _____________________ Last video: https://youtu.be/cys45C6l9jY The CHALKboard: http://www.youtube.com/c/CHALKboard Find the CHALKboard on Facebook: http://bit.ly/CHALKboard _____________________ #CHALK #IVT #RealAnalysis

100 | Nathan Dalaklis
 
04:43
This channel just passed 100 subscribers this past week, and in order to celebrate, I wanted to talk about some places that 100 pops up in mathematics. So, this video contains a bit of combinatorics and number theory that I don't always find time to talk about (but am looking forward to talking more about!). We'll see 100 chilling with some polygons as well as with Nicomachus and self-descriptiveness too! ___________________________________________________________ The CHALKboard: http://www.youtube.com/c/CHALKboard Find the CHALKboard on Facebook: http://bit.ly/CHALKboard Interested in the person behind the camera?

Limits of Sequences | Nathan Dalaklis
 
05:54
Limits come up in various forms in many fields of mathematics, in order to understand other ideas of limits it helps to understand limits of sequences in real analysis. In this video, the definition of sequences and limits of sequences is presented along with an example of an epsilon proof argument; how you might go about proving that a limit of a certain sequence is actually the limit from a real analysis point of view. ___________________________________________________________ Find the CHALKboard on Facebook: http://bit.ly/CHALKboard Interested in the person behind the camera?

Are Prime Factorizations in the Integers Unique? | Nathan Dalaklis
 
04:34
I'm trying a new thing where I highlight videos from the new format that are completely proof based on Thursdays. This "Prove it Thursday" I wanted to highlight the video about the fundamental theorem of arithmetic. Here we go through the proof and ask a few questions about what else can happen when things aren't as nice as the Integers. Lost in the mathematics? This video comes from the "The Natural Numbers, Problems and Questions" video tree here on CHALK. It was made public 6/27/2019.

Fear at Birth | Nathan Dalaklis
 
02:26
What could you possibly fear at birth? What fears are you "born with"? Well, in this video, I'll quickly go over a view different things that the study of psychology has brought to light as likely candidates for such fears.

An Intro to Induction | Nathan Dalaklis
 
07:04
Induction is a proof method that can feel incomplete when first coming across it even though all of the logic sits right in the conditions required of the prinicipal of mathematical induction (PMI) and the principal of strong induction (PSI). In this video, I give an introduction to the former of the logically equivalent twinsees of the induction framework with an example proof and some similar exercises at the end if you want to take a stab at proving somethings yourself! _____________________ Last video: https://youtu.be/r8-1_9NDN8A The CHALKboard: http://www.youtube.com/c/CHALKboard Find the CHALKboard on Facebook: http://bit.ly/CHALKboard _____________________ Interested in the person behind the camera?

How to make Gold Nanowire with Math | Nathan Dalaklis
 
07:38
So you want to make gold nanowire. You have the nanoparticles and some other chemicals, but where do you start? This is where math helps out. The Hairy Ball Theorem remedies some of the difficulties with working with these super small particles. So how does the HBT work and how exactly does it remedy the fact these particles are so small and we can't really pin them together by hand. _____________________ A complete (albeit short) proof of the HBT by Peter McGrath: https://www.math.brown.edu/~peter_mcgrath/research/hairy-ball.pdf _____________________ ***CORRECTIONS***: There are a few times when I say 'p' instead of 'x'. Hopefully it does not cause much confusion... _____________________ Last video: http://bit.ly/2L0LsQl The CHALKboard: http://www.youtube.com/c/CHALKboard Find the CHALKboard on Facebook: http://bit.ly/CHALKboard _____________________ Interested in the person behind the camera?

How Slow Can You Sum to Infinity? | Nathan Dalaklis
 
06:31
Series can often be intuitively misleading. When we are taking sums of even very small terms the series we are working with may still grow arbitrarily large, so how slowly can you sum to infinity, and what is the test to see if a series is going to converge or diverge? Here we talk about some of the intuition behind this phenomenon and give a proof of the divergence of the harmonic series as well as a proof of the Cauchy Condensation Test. ****CORRECTIONS: Often I will say "n" but will write "k" ***** _____________________ CHECK OUT THE NOTES THAT GO ALONG WITH THIS VIDEO!!! http://bit.ly/CauConHS _____________________ The CHALKboard: http://www.youtube.com/c/CHALKboard Find the CHALKboard on Facebook: http://bit.ly/CHALKboard _____________________ Interested in the person behind the camera?
