Games, Gamers, and Mathematics

We will explore the mathematical and computational modeling of some games, video games, and puzzles developed as part of research projects in mathematics and computer science. These include sliding puzzles and art gallery problems with towers and queens. Come and play with us and do a bit of mathematical modeling to find the right winning strategies… though they might not exist!

Érika Roldan’s mathematical research includes gamification and visualization technology. For almost twenty years, she has been implementing and developing outreach and educational projects in México, the USA and in several European countries with the main purpose of promoting the enjoyment and appreciation of mathematics and its application by the general public as well as increasing the enrollment of underrepresented minorities in STEAM. Erika founded BAMM at Ohio State University and co-founded Matemorfosis, and Music-Math. She is currently leading the research group Stochastic Topology and its applications at the Max Planck Institute MiS and is also affiliated with the Center for Scalable Data Analytics and Artificial Intelligence at Universität Leipzig, where she leads research projects on Computational Complexity, Educational technology, and Learning Analytics.  More info:
