Math Season [Video]

Since it's the last day of July, my personal goal of two blog posts per month (down from last year's four) is about to take hit. Seeing as it's also my final post as a thirty-something, you might expect I'd have some clever musings on getting older. Nope. I just wanted to share a video overview from the 2012 Moody's Mega Math Challenge. This year the problem revolved around high-speed rail.

So, as you might have guessed from the title of this post, it's once again math season at BMG. I recently returned from covering the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics Annual Meeting in Minneapolis and am furiously working on creating highlights from three day's of footage and interviews. This year's clips will include a talk about 3D modeling of the real-world for movie effects and another about image processing ("Enhance!").
