Morbidity of Mathematics #2: Mathematical Murder, An illustrated lecture with Michael Carlisle
Date: Tuesday, September 22nd
Time: 8pm
Admission: $8
Location: Morbid Anatomy Museum, 424 Third Avenue, 11215 Brooklyn NY


Previously, we explored tragic deaths of various famous mathematicians, by political or religious execution, poverty and disease, or suicide. This time, we take a look at a few examples of those mathematicians and scientists (in both fiction and non-fiction) on the other side of the coin - the ones who decided to take human life. From here, we ask a more general question: What is it in the popular narrative that makes an individual drawn to abstraction get to this point of no return? We don't quite know what makes a mathy mind tick... what makes one explode?

Michael Carlisle is an Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Baruch College. When not teaching probability theory and stochastic calculus, he develops games and comics for unorthodox mathematics, and stares at infinity a bunch.
