Transcript of Mathematics in Chile

Math In Chile photo credit Nasa / Goddard Space Flight Center / Reto Stöckli 33 Chilean miners were rescued thanks to math. Using simple machines of pulleys, axles, incline planes, plus retractable wheels placed on the capsule to smooth the ride up the shaft, NASA was able to communicate with, help, and eventually rescue trapped miners in Chile. Chile contributed to- Cellular automata Frucht graph(graph theory) Exact Sciences partial differential equations inverse problems The Frucht Graph The Frucht Graph was made by Robert Frucht, and proved that every group can be realized as the group of symmetries of an undirected graph. Chilean Mathematicians Robert Frucht(Graph Theory) is known for Frucht's theorem,the result that every group can be realized as the group of symmetries of an undirected graph Carlos Conca(Exact Sciences) is known for being awarded with the Premio Nacional de Ciencias Exactas de Chile. Eric Goles(Civil Engineering) is an advisor on science and technology to the Chilean government Gunther Alberto Uhlmann(Differential Equations) has received several honors for his research including a Sloan Fellowship in 1984 and a Guggenheim fellowship in 2001. In 2001 he was elected a Corresponding Member of the Chilean Academy of Sciences. Math emerged in Chile in 1532, with the Incas being the first to use math significantly.
