Robert Osserman
Steinberg Auditorium


The St. Louis Gateway Arch is not only a monumental architectural structure, it's also a mathematical marvel. As part of Washington University's Assembly Series, Robert Osserman, a distinguished mathematician, will explore the concepts involved in the Arch's design in his lecture, How the Gateway Arch Got Its Shape. This lecture will immediately follow the film, Monument to the Dream: America's Gateway Arch, an Engineering Triumph.
