MAA MathFest '99 Conference Photos:
Gregg Christopher, Jason Tedor, and I attended
the Mathematical Association of America's 1999
MathFest meeting in Providence, Rhode Island.
We came to give a presentation on our winning
1999 MCM paper, "A Pair of Evacuation Models
for Determining Room Capacity".
We arrived on Thursday, July 28-- they flew, I
drove. We drove up to Boston on Friday to see
the Boston Museum of Fine Art's John Singer
Sargent exhibit as well as Fenway park. Sadly,
we could only drive by Fenway park, as there
was a Red Sox-Yankees game that night and hence
gobs of fans. We searched for a parking spot in
downtown for about 3 hours, finding success only
after most of the shops were closed.
(1-8 are of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts)
The meeting was interesting, but many talks were
generally trivial, uninteresting, or unintelligible.
There were definitely fun parts, though. I heard
my first intelligible description of wavelets, and
got piles of good simulation ideas.
(9 and 10 are of the Rhode Island Convention
Centre and Westin Hotel respectively, where
the conference was held.)
