Splash Biography

DANIEL HWANG, Yale Senior!

Major: Chemical Engineering

College/Employer: Yale University

Brief Biographical Sketch:

I love to talk about infinity! I taught in the fall of 2012 and got excited about Splash so I joined the admin team. I have since graduated after serving Splash for 4 years, and now just teach. If you have any questions about infinity or Yale life, feel free to email me at daniel.hwang@yale.edu

X2785: University Tycoon in Splash Spring 17 (Apr. 08, 2017)
You're now in charge of a major research university! What are the things you need to think about in order to make sure everything runs smoothly?

M2786: To Infinity and Beyond! in Splash Spring 17 (Apr. 08, 2017)
How big is infinity? What is beyond infinity? How can you work with infinity? We’ll be discussing different levels of infinitude, creating elegant proofs, and solving riddles with infinity to note some of the most interesting properties of infinitude.

C2438: To Infinity and Beyond! in Sprout Spring 17 (Feb. 11 - 25, 2017)
How do you add people to a fully occupied infinite hotel? When we are little, we have a pretty basic understanding of infinity, how we can count and count and never end. But when we do more complicated work with infinity, it suddenly isn't so intuitive. How do we deal with that concept when it is applied to different theoretical scenarios?

M921: To Fractals and Beyond! in Splash Spring 14 (Mar. 29, 2014)
A continuation course that should be taken after To Infinity and Beyond, whether taking both in the spring or after having taken it in the fall. For those that are very interested in infinity and fractals. We will show how concepts from the Infinity and Beyond course transfer to fractals, the psychedelic images that are created by taking simple processes and repeating them infinitely many times. Applications of fractals will also be discussed.
