About the Talk:
In a glass case in the hallway of Altgeld Hall on the University of Illinois campus lies an all-but-forgotten machine -- a Harmonic Analyzer designed by Albert Michelson to perform Fourier Analysis. This presentation will describe the year long effort to memorialize this machine via the creation of a series of videos and production of posters and a coffee table book. No specialized knowledge will be necessary to appreciate this wondrous machine.
The MSTE Friday Lunches take place during the Fall & Spring semesters. Join us weekly for presentations and informal dialogue on Math, Science, Technology, and/or Education.
