Not Available. Past Classes(Clicking a class title will bring you to the course's section of the corresponding course catalog)M14785: Elliptic curves in Splash 2021 (Nov. 20  21, 2021)
Elliptic curves are easy to define, but lead to a vast amount of interesting math and important applications. In this class we'll talk about elliptic curves over the complex numbers and over finite fields, and in the second case we'll look into how they connect to cryptography.
M13855: Clock arithmetic in Spark 2020 (Mar. 14  15, 2020)
This class is not actually about clocks, but actually about exploring a different number system that you might have seen under a different name.
At some point, you've probably had to compute a remainder after dividing two numbers. This is what we will call clock arithmetic (and for a good reason!). You'll learn about the structure of this number system and some of its many amazing properties!
