Professor Rod Downey
Hawke’s Bay Branch Royal Society Te Apārangi
There are those who would argue that mathematics and Scottish Country Dancing are some of the pinnacles of human achievement. Rod works in mathematics and specifically algorithmics and the theory of computation.
Rod is a teacher and devisor of Scottish country dances. He will try to explain how the cognitive processes in his kind of mathematics and dancing resemble one another and give an insight into a small part of modern mathematics and an interesting and fun dance form.
