Event Details

Tau Day Party

Mathematical Enlightenment

On Tuesday, June 28, come out to Caltech in Pasadena, California, to celebrate Tau Day—a holiday for those who know (or at least suspect) that pi is wrong, and venerate the true circle constant instead. The Tau Day Party will start with mingling at 8 p.m., followed by a mathematical talk based on The Tau Manifesto beginning between 8:15 and 8:30. After a solid dose of anti-pi propaganda, we'll adjourn to the reception area, where we will eat twice as much pie as we really ought to.

The venue for the Tau Day Party is the Cahill Center for Astronomy and Astrophysics, an impossible-to-miss angular orange building on California Boulevard in Pasadena. The talk will take place in the Cahill Center's Hameetman Auditorium, with the reception to follow in the nearby outdoor patio. Parking is free and plentiful in the lot and parking structure just southeast of the Cahill Center.

This is a free event, but contributions in the form of small donations or (two) pies will be gratefully accepted. If you plan to bring pie, please email me so that I'll know how many we'll need from the caterer. Also, if you are coming from out of town, let me know and I'll send you information about local logistics and hotel discounts.

I'm looking forward to seeing you all on 6/28. Happy Tau Day!
