With Halloween creeping closer on Friday, a Williams College professor and author is giving a very timely, yet eyebrow-raising talk at Berkshire Community College tomorrow. Colin Adams is a mathematics professor, humor columnist for the Mathematical Intelligencer and author whose new book is titled Zombies & Calculus.
Adams spoke with WAMC’s Berkshire Bureau Chief Jim Levulis to explain how the characters in the novel use math to battle zombies.
