DESCRIPTION:Whenever one thinks of problems that have occupied
the attention of mathematicians for centuries\, n
umber theoretic problems spring to mind: Fermat’s
Last Theorem\, Goldbach’s Conjecture\, and the Twi
n Primes Conjecture. But\, as it happens\, there a
re some problems of geometry which\, in various in
carnations\, have been around for two millennia. I
n the talk I shall present a number of results abo
ut such problems\, starting with results obtained
in antiquity and the Middle Ages\, continuing with
theorems of Cauchy and Cayley\, and ending with s
ome recent results and unsolved problems. The talk
will be accessible to freshmen\, but will hold ch
allenges for research students as well.
