In this talk, Tom Concannon, Ph.D. discusses the concept of infinity, and the efforts of mathematicians and philosophers over the last couple millennia to tame it. Click here to watch the video!
Dr. Tom Concannon received his PhD in semi-classical gravity on the thermodynamics of rotating black holes. Following professorships at both Wake Forest University and Elon College (now Elon University), he decided to try software engineering as a challenge. After many years in this industry, he again went to graduate school at Lehigh University to earn his master's degree in mathematics, which enabled him to return to full-time teaching at King's College in Wilkes-Barre. He currently teaches courses on differential equations, mathematical methods in the physical sciences, and computer programming. He strongly believes that learning can only truly be accomplished and appreciated if it is taught to others.
