Title: Elementary Math Challenges involving inequalities
Speaker: Miguel A. Lerma
Speaker Info: Northwestern University
Brief Description: Training session for the Putnam Competition.
Special Note: Training session for the Putnam Competition.
In this session I will give a brief introduction to some common inequalities, and will review sample problems. I will also show how some apparently challenging optimization problems that may require lengthly calculations when approached as calculus problems, can be greatly simplified by using inequalities.Date: Tuesday, October 22, 2019
