Extended Deadline "Pictures and Proofs" (Columbia SC - 19. bis 21.3.2015)
Abstracts will be accepted until Nov 30 for the conference "Pictures and
Proofs", March 19 to 21, 2015 at the University of South Carolina.
- What are the roles of pictures and diagrams in mathematical proofs, in
formal reasoning, and in epistemic justification more broadly?
- Can pictures by themselves serve as arguments insofar as they can be
persuasive and even convey a sense of demonstrative certainty?
For the most part, these two questions have been discussed separately.
We seek to bring them together and thereby take them in new directions.
