Happy Numbers on a Happy Day by Nohemi Sepulveda '18

Mathematics Colloquium

Abstract:  In this talk we will be looking at happy numbers, a sequence of numbers used by Doctor Who in episode 42 in order to save a spaceship from hurdling into the sun.  Cool, right?  Our main result will show that there exist sequences of consecutive happy numbers of arbitrary length.  Stop by this talk and learn more about numbers that will not only make you happy, but could also be useful in moments when you might need to save the world!
