A Gathering for Gardner

11:54am, March 23, 2006

The Seventh Gathering for Gardner (G4G7), recently held in Atlanta, was an exhilarating event. It featured a potent jumble of mathematicians, computer scientists, artists, writers, engineers, magicians, inventors, puzzlists—both designers and master solvers—and more. Numbering nearly 300, they had all gathered to honor Martin Gardner, whose writings in recreational mathematics and magic over many years had exerted such a profound influence over their lives.

Organized and hosted by Tom Rodgers, Mark Setteducati, and Elwyn Berlekamp, G4G7 was the seventh in this series of biannual meetings. Attendance at these events is by invitation only. See http://www.plambeck.org/oldhtml/journal
