Jan. 16, 2019:  Join Friends of Sarah Lawrence College on Tuesday, January 29, at 7:00 pm, at 45 Wrexham Road for a fascinating discussion of game theory with mathematics scholar Daniel King.

King’s presentation will focus on two particularly intriguing games: Newcomb’s problem and the prisoner's dilemma. The analysis of both games and the paradoxes they unleash serve to challenge some of our most cherished beliefs and philosophical viewpoints.

Daniel King earned his BS from Lafayette College and MS and PhD from the University of Virginia. A mathematics scholar, his special interests include mathematics education, game theory, history and philosophy of mathematics, and the outreach of mathematics to the social sciences and the humanities.

He currently teaches an undergraduate course, Game Theory: The Study of Strategy and Conflict. No prior knowledge of game theory or advanced-level mathematics is required to enjoy and fully engage with the ideas explored in this talk.

Learn how two intuitively logical analyses can give conflicting answers and why two completely rational individuals might not cooperate, even if it appears in their best interests to do so.

To register for this free event, please email  CLOAKING .

Bronxville Public Library

Bronxville Public Library

The Bronxville Public Library traces its origins back to 1875, when it was a small lending library housed in a room attached to the “Bronxville Model School.” The Library was officially chartered in 1906 and moved into the Village Hall Building. The needs of the library grew with the town and, in 1942, a new standalone building was erected, which is where the Library is today. Over the years, the Library was renovated and expanded to meet the needs of the community.

The Library has wonderful resources for adults and children and offers a comfortable and relaxing environment. The Library also houses a fine art collection, consisting principally of Bronxville painters and sculptors.

The Library offers special events, art exhibitions, and programs for adults, young adults and children.  All events are open to the public, unless otherwise indicated.
