Presented by Professor Dwight Bean, USD.

Ramsey Theory posits that order must persist no matter how some objects are disordered.
This talk will discuss Ramsey Theory in general and one example in particular: no matter how the plane is partitioned into two parts, there must be three points in the same part forming a (3,5,7) triangle.

Lunch will be provided.
