Kantrowitz Lectures at Joint Mathematics Meetings

Professor of Mathematics Robert Kantrowitz '82 was a speaker in the session on Mathematics and Sports at the annual Joint Meetings of the American Mathematical Society and the Mathematical Association of America held in Washington, DC, in January. 

In his talk, "Hitting golf balls and tee balls as far as possible," Kantrowitz discussed projectile motion as a model for the flights of golf and tee balls -- the former launched from ground level, the latter from a height above ground level. The talk centered around the problem of determining launch angles that maximize the ranges of the projectiles, both in the absence and presence of drag.
