Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hello! My name is Arjun Goswami, and I am an undergraduate student at Caltech studying physics and computer science. I have always been passionate about finding how the natural world works at the most fundamental level; the mathematics and the beautiful symmetries describing nature have always intrigued me, prompting me to study physics at a higher level. Someday I hope to attend graduate school and obtain a PhD so I can become a researcher in high energy or condensed-matter physics.

M152: Generating Functions and the Fibonacci Sequence in Splash Spring 2016 (Feb. 27, 2016)
An introduction to generating functions. We will explore some seriously cool and nontrivial mathematical problems that can be solved with generating functions, including an explicit formula for the Fibonacci sequence. In addition, we explore some interesting combinatorial problems in discrete mathematics, including applications of the Catalan numbers.
