# GAUSS Seminar

Speaker:

Ethan Rooke

Topic:

Numbers and Games

**Abstract:**

This talk will focus itself on games. Some basic games will be introduced and their strategies analyzed. We will scratch the surface of combinatorial game theory, a lovely, playful, and often overlooked branch of mathematics. In the process we will stumble upon the surreal numbers and explore the very nature of “numbers”. This talk will be accessible for all audiences. There is no prerequisite knowledge needed, just an open mind.
