The Webinar on the Mathematics of Shadows took place on Thursday, July 23rd, 2020 from 2 pm until 3 pm, with Mario Ponce, Professor of Mathematics in the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile, as our invited speaker. This virtual event was free and open to the general public.
On this event, the invited speaker took us on a journey into the shadows, defying our intuition, where not everything was what it seemed. For example, the shadows that looked like Popeye, Mickey Mouse and Snoopy were in fact from a completely different object. Mario Ponce also commented on how in some cases it is important to trust the shadows, for example when we are dealing with X-rays of the human body.
